The Chorioactidaceae are a family of cup fungi in the order Pezizales containing seven species distributed among five genera.[1] Pseudosarcosoma was added in 2013 to contain P. latahense when molecular phylogenetic studies demonstrated the fungus to be more closely related to the Chorioactidaceae than to Sarcosoma (family Sarcosomataceae).[2]
