Chiodecton sanguineum (syn. C. rubrocinctum) is transferred to the genus Cryptothecia Stirton and the new species C. striata is described. The latter is usually known in the literature as Chiodecton montagnei. Descriptions of both species are given. The distribution in the U.S.A. is mapped for C. striata and the distribution in the U.S.A. and America excluding the U.S.A. is mapped for C. rubrocincta. Cryptothecia striata is found with asci but not C. rubrocincta.
