The lichenicolous fungus Arthonia phaeophysciae Grube & Matzer (Arthoniaceae, Ascomycota), growing on Physciella melanchra and Phaeophyscia sp., is newly reported from Central Honshu in Japan. Additional localities are reported for Korea. This study demonstrates the phylogenetic position of the species in the Bryostigma-clade of Arthoniaceae and confirms the identity of this research’s recent collections from Japan and Korea using Bayesian and RAxML analyses of mtSSU, nrLSU and RPB2 sequence data. A detailed description of the species based on collections from Japan and Korea is provided.
