    Sixteen species of Dendrothele sensu lato are confirmed from New Zealand. Nine new taxa are described: Dendrothele arachispora, D. aucklandica, D. australis, D. cymbiformis, D. leptostachys, D. magnenavicularis, D. navicularis, D. novae-zelandiae and D. subellipsoidea. Ten species were previously reported, but only four are confirmed: D. ampullospora comb. nov., D. biapiculata, D. incrustans and D. pulvinata. Reports of Dendrothele acerina, D. candida, D. commixta and D. nivosa were not confirmed. Furthermore, D. nivosa sensu G. Cunningham and D. corniculata are not true dendrotheles, and D. fasciculata is accepted in Epithele. The new taxa, D. ampullospora, D. biapiculata and D. pulvinata are described and illustrated. A key to Dendrothele s.1. from New Zealand is provided.
