The genus Lecanactis is shown to be a monophyletic group, characterized by the thin tomentose - like structure of its thallus, the dark brown proper exciple hyphae laterally becoming paler, and the presence of dibenzofurans. Eight taxa, formerly included in Schismatomma, are transferred to Lecanactis, i.e. L. elaeocarpa, L. epileuca, L. flavidosella, L. flaviseda, L. fraudans, L. homoeoides, L. inferius, and L. subattingens, and illustrated. Chiodecton mattogrossense is found to be a taxomomic synomym of Lecanactis elaeocarpa.
