Topeliopsis darlingtonii A. Frisch & Kalb and Topeliopsis elixii A. Frisch & Kalb from Australia and Topeliopsis meridensis Kalb & A. Frisch from Venezuela are described as new species. Thelotrema decorticans Müll. Arg. and Ocellularia subdenticulata Zahlbr. are transferred to Topeliopsis and are the correct names for T. corticola Kalb and T. vezdae Kalb, respectively. A revised key of the genus Topeliopsis is presented. Ascoconidia, produced in old ascospores of T. elixii, are described for the first time for the Thelotremataceae.
