Pannaria santessonii is described here as new. It is presently known only from two collections made from Cerro Tralcan, near Riñihue in the XIV Region of Los Ríos in southern Chile in 1940. The species contains vicanicin, like its suggested closest relatives in the P. sphinctrina complex, but it has a large-squamulose to subfoliose growth form, a thin, adpressed and erhizinate thallus and small apothecia producing ascospores with smooth perispores.
