Menegazzia neotropica sp. nov. is described from upper montane forest remnants and paramos in Ecuador, Colombia and Venezuela. It is characterized by short-pedicellate apothecia with ridged margins that partly obscure the discs, and by narrow, glossy lobes with brown-black margins. Menegazzia dissecta is recorded from South America for the first time and M. terebrata is recorded from Colombia and Ecuador for the first time.
