A new gall-inducing and lirellate lichenicolous fungus, Plectocarpon diedertzianum Y. Joshi, Upadhyay et Chandra, is described from Kumaun Himalayan regions of India colonising thallus of various parmelioid lichens (Flavoparmelia caperata, Myelochroa aurulenta, Parmotrema crinitum, P. melanothrix, P. reticulatum, Punctelia subrudecta). The new species is characterised by black, epruinose rounded to lirellate ascomata with a carbonised surface and a ±thalline pseudomargin, as well as a carbonised, sterile stromatic tissue, 4-spored asci and 3-septate hyaline ascospores.
