Was your source indexfungorum? They are frequently out of date for lichens in my experience. I wish I had access to the 2009 paper by Aptroot et al. to understand their reasoning, but I can guarantee molecular work was involved. Their decision to reinstate Herpothallon has been widely accepted in the lichenological community.
