A new combination, nomenclature of Nothophacidium phyllophilum is proposed for Nothophacidium abietinellum ( Dearn.) Reid & Cain. This fungus is a secondary invader of needles of balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) infected by Hypodermella spp. Pezizella minuta Dearn., occurring on needles of hard pines, is similar to, if not identical with, N. phyllophilum.
