In current classifications of the Suboperculate Discomycetes, a single family, Sarcoscyphaceae, is almost universally recognized, with two tribes, Sarcoscypheae and Urnuleae. An older family name is available, and the correct name for the family as currently delimited must be Sarcosomataceae, and of the tribes, Sarcoscypheae and Sarcosomateae respectively. A new classification is proposed here, in which two families are delimited, each divided into two tribes: Sarcosomataceae (= Urnuleae sensu Le Gal), with tribes Sarcosomateae and Galielleae, and Sarcoscyphaceae emend. (= Sarcoscypheae sensu Le Gal) with tribes Sarcoscypheae and Boedijnopezizeae. Twenty-five genera are assigned positions under the families and tribes recognized in the new classification. The family name Sarcoscyphaceae, even with its emended circumscription, is technically a superfluous name, but arguments are advanced for retaining the name in its new concept and for non-application of Article 63 of the Code of Nomenclature.
