Almost all micrometres (μm) have been erroneously changed into millimetres (mm). All measurements of algal cells, ostiole, involucrellum thickness, exciple wall thickness, periphysoids, asci, ascospores and perispores should be in micrometres (μm). Furthermore, thallus thickness should be in micrometres in Verrucaria bifurcata, V. cavernarum, V. difficilis and V. vacillans.

In the lectotypification of Verrucaria subjunctiva registration number MBT392473, MBT is missing from the MycoBank number. This note validates the lectotypification.

We would like to thank Teuvo Ahti and James Lendemer for pointing out the nomenclatural issue.
