Abstract

The new species Endohyalina parmotrematis R. Ngangom, Shweta Sharma, S. Joseph & Nayaka is described from the Western Himalaya of India. This is the first species of Endohyalina growing on the thallus of Parmotrema. The new species can easily be distinguished from other species of Endohyalina by having immersed to sessile apothecia with large Mischoblastia-type ascospores, and a different host.
