The new lichenized species Sphaerophorus venerabilis (Sphaerophoraceae, Lecanorales, Ascomycota) is described and the long confusion with S. tuckermanii clarified. The names S. tuckermanii and S. globiferus var. gracilis Mull. Arg. are lectotypified, and a key to the species of Sphaerophorus in western North America is presented.
