Material of the genus Menegazzia from the Tibetan region was revised. Four species were recognized, viz. two fertile (primary) species (M. neotropica ssp. rotundicarpa, M. primaria) and two sorediate (secondary) species (M. subsimils, M. terebrata). Menegazzia neotropica ssp. rotundicarpa is reported for the first time from outside the Neotropics, and M. primaria is reported for the first time from outside Taiwan, from a single locality near Yulong Shan. Menegazzia subsimilis is new to Tibet. The most common species is M. terebrata. Notes and illustrations of morphological variation, as well as a distribution map, are provided.
