Full Text:



A second species of Vestigium is described and contrasted with V. felicis known from Oregon and B.C. on Thuja plicata. The new species occurs on needles of Abies balsamea in New Brunswick and is compared with Rhizothyrium abietis, the anamorph of Rhizocalyx abietis. Molecular studies of the new species show affinity with Chlorencoeliaceae, Dermateaceae, Hemiphacidiaceae or Hyaloscyphaceae.
