Type speciesLichenobarya usneae (Etayo) Etayo, Diederich & Lawrey

Notes – Lawrey et al. (2015) established Lichenobarya for the lichenicolous species N. usneae based on DNA sequence data. The genus is characterized by superficial, obpyriform, perithecial, brown ascomata, immersed in a poorly-developed and inconspicuous subiculum, elongate asci with or without slightly-thickened apex and long, filiform, multi-septate ascospores (Lawrey et al. 2015). There is no report of a asexual morph for this genus (Lawrey et al. 2015).
