The nomenclature and taxonomy of two Roccella species are examined and clarified. Roccella tinctoria DC., a nomen novum for Lichen roccella L., replaces Roccella vincentina ["vicentina"] (Vain.) Follm., the name which has been most commonly used in recent years for this sorediate species. Roccella fucoides (Dicks.) Vain, based on Lichen fucoides Dicks., is neotypified and is the correct name for what has been known as R. phycopsis, now shown to be an illegitimate superfluous name for R. fucoides.
