Two new lichenicolous fungi in the genus Dacampia are described: Dacampia caloplacicola on the thallus of saxicolous Caloplaca crenularia from western Turkey and D. xanthomendozae on the thallus of epiphytic Xanthomendoza from Argentina. The new species differ from those previously recognized in the genus in size and septation of ascospores, as well as occurring on unrelated hosts. They are the first species of the genus recognized on the host lichen family Teloschistaceae.
