Abstract: The nomenclature and typification of some calicioid fungi in genera Chaenothecopsis and Brucea are corrected. Chaenothecopsis oregana is reinstated with a new lectotype (holotype lost), while C. zebrina is reduced to its synonymy. Brucea is a later homonym and is therefore replaced by the new generic name Bruceomyces. A new combination B. castoris is introduced.
