A sample from Canada is also reported. A history of the genus Allophylaria is given. New data, ecological and chorological information and some comments on the confusion with Crocicreas and Cyathicula are added. rDNA sequences of SSU, ITS, and LSU were gained which support placement of the genus in the Pezizellaceae
