Two species of Crinpellis originally described from the Neotropics are re-examined here, based on the type material, C. galeropsidoides (also including fresh collections) and C. metuloidophora. In literature, both species were found in need of complementary information since their protologues are deficient in morphological and ecological data. This is particularly due for C. metuloidophora with a poor description consisting of very few Latin words in a footnote. This species is considered relevant for being the type and only one species of Crinipellis sect. Metuloidophorae. This study provides detailed morphological description of both taxa followed by photographs, line-drawing illustrations and taxonomic comments. A key of the sections and subsections of Crinipellis is also provided.
