The Brigantiaeaceae are a family of fungi in the Ascomycota, class Lecanoromycetes. Its relationship to other taxa in the Lecanoromycetes is not well understood, so it is considered to be incertae sedis with respect to ordinal placement.[1] Species in this family are lichenized with green algae, and are usually found growing on bark.[2]
