Abstract: Lophiotrema borealiforme (Ascomycota, Lophiotremataceae) is described as a new species. The description is based mainly on the holotype collection, but also on the eight other known specimens. Similarities and differences to the closest related species, Lophiotrema boreale, are descriped. Lophiotrema borealiforme is only known from southeastern, and the very southern part of Sweden.
