new data on the ecology and distribution of eleven epiphytic lichens in southern Europe of the family Verrucariaceae are provided. Agonimia globulifera and Verrucaria sorbinea are new to the Iberian Peninsula and V. phloeophila is new to Spain. All species represent new provincial records. Agonimia octospora, Macentina dictyospora, Psoroglaena stigonemoides and Thelopsis rubella are locally abundant on mossy bark of old Fraxinus angustifolia trees in deep valleys and steep ravines in Central Spain. A short description and distributional maps in the Iberian Peninsula are provided for each taxon.

se aportan nuevos datos sobre la ecología y distribución de 11 verrucariáceos epífitos muy poco conocidos en la Península Ibérica. Agonimia globulifera y Verrucaria sorbinea son nuevos para la Península Ibérica y V. phloeophila se herboriza por primera vez en España. Todas las especies se citan por primera vez en todas las provincias. La mayoría de ellas se desarrollan en condiciones ecológicas similares, zonas muy húmedas, árboles de gran porte, bosques bien conservados y estructurados. Agonimia octospora, Macentina dictyospora, Psoroglaena stigonemoides y Thelopsis rubella son especialmente abundantes en valles y barrancos del centro peninsular, sobre viejos fresnos musgosos. Se aportan además una pequeña caracterización de cada una de las especies y mapas de su distribución en la Península Ibérica.
