A stipitate Operculate Discomycete with asci that blue in iodine, Lepidotia hispida, has been rediscovered growing on Sphagnum-pots in North America. The species was first found nearly a century earlier by Quélet in France, and has not been reported since. It is the type species of the nearly forgotten generic name Lepidotia, which is not accepted here but placed in synonymy with Peziza. An unnamed imperfect state is formed, and apothecia are quickly and easily produced in pure culture. When treated as a species of Peziza, a new name is required, P. quelepidotia Korf & O’Donnell, nom. nov.
