An annotated key to the lichenicolous (lichen-inhabiting) Ascomycota, including mitosporic morphs, known from Sweden is presented. Recent additions, both from the literature and our own collections, of these fungi to the Swedish flora are also included. A total of 298 ascomycetes representing 83 genera, and 65 mitosporic fungi from 31 genera, have been found to occur in Sweden. Each species keyed out is followed by information and selected literature references on morphology, distribution, and ecology. Taxonomic notes and discussions are given for several critical genera and species, and selected species are illustrated.
