Abstract:  Peziza virella P. Karst. is shown to be conspecific with Amicodisca brdensis (Velen.) Svr. and a new combination, Amicodisca virella (P. Karst.) Huhtinen, is proposed. Peziza sordidula P. Karst. is placed in the genus Pseudohelotium Fuckel and is shown to offer an earlier name for Belonium vernale Velen. The genus Aleuriella (P. Karst.) P. Karst. is considered as distinct from Mollisia (Fr.) P. Karst. Aleuriella personata (P. Karst.) P. Karst. may offer an earlier name for Mollisia psilopezizoides Svrcek. Peziza perforata P. Karst. is shown to be a synonym of Tarzetta catinus (Holmsk. : Fr.) Korf & Rogers. Typification for each of the treated taxa is clarified.
