A modern description is provided for Geopyxis pallidus, a species described by L. Rodway in 1920, from the here selected lectotype and additional recent collections from Tasmania. Based on its morphology, we recombine G. pallidus into the genus Jafnea. Recent records of Jafnea pallida comb. nov. from Tasmania have been misnamed as the morphologically similar Tarzetta jafneospora. The two species can be distinguished by their different spore ornamentation.
