The Arthrorhaphidaceae are a family of lichenized fungi in the division Ascomycota.[1] This is a monotypic taxon, containing the single genus Arthrorhaphis, first described by Theodor Magnus Fries in 1860. The family was named by J. Poelt and J. Hafellner in 1976.[2] Species in this family have a widespread distribution in temperate and montane habitats. They grow symbiotically with green algae, or parasitically on other lichens.[3]
