Abstract

Staurolemma carolinianum is described as the first species from the American continent of this apparently ancient genus. The type was collected on Juniperus on sand dunes of coastal North Carolina, and this easily overlooked species may be present in similar habitats southwards to Florida. Its closest relative, S. dussii (Vain.) P. M. Jørg. & Henssen, is known from the West Indies, and the genus shows a Madro-Tethyan distribution pattern.
