Caliciaceae (order Caliciales) A family of fungi (mostly lichen-forming) in which the thallus is thin and crustose or immersed in the substratum; the asci are thin-walled and soon disintegrate, forming a mazaedium. Spores are brown or colourless. There are many genera. Usually they are found on bark or wood.
