The “Funga Capixaba” have been overlooked for a very long time, leading to a gap in the local mycological
knowledge. In order to create a preliminary and updated list of Ascomycetes and lichen-forming fungi
from Espírito Santo state, Brazil we reviewed all specimens deposited in the VIES Herbarium and key
references of former mycological studies. In our list, we report a total of 528 species belonging to 173 genera
and 65 families. 422 are new records for Espírito Santo state, six species, Mazaediothecium uniseptatum, Cratiriachloraceus, Lecanoraglaucoidea, Pyrenula montocensis, and P. oleosa, are new records both for
the neotropics and Brazil, and Lobariella pseudocrenulata is also new to Brazil. We have increased the
number of accepted macrofungi species names from 85 to 528, which makes the Espírito Santo state the
10th highest in terms of known fungal diversity among Brazilian states. An updated and preliminary list
of macroscopic Ascomycota including lichen-forming fungi from Espírito Santo, comments, and a brief
overview about the local mycology are provided.
Key words: Atlantic forest, diversity, Espírito Santo, lichen, Southeast Brazil.
