Taxonomy and phylogeny of the Caloplaca cerina group in Europe
The Caloplaca cerina group is defined here as a monophyletic, but internally richly branched lineage that grows mainly on plant debris, small shrubs and bryophytes and consists of at least four internal lineages. Expand
Additions to the diversity of rare or overlooked lichens and lichenicolous fungi in Ukrainian Carpathians
This document is intended to assist in the preparation of future publications about Chaenotheca cinerea and its role in the arts. Expand
Contribution to lichen flora of Ukrainian Carpathians
Data on 55 lichen species (namely Absconditella lignicola Vězda & Pišut, Agonimia tristicula (Nyl.) Zahlbr., Anisomeridium polypori (Ellix et Everh.) M.E. Barr, Arthopyrenia salicis A. Massal.,Expand
Two new European species from the heterogeneous Caloplaca holocarpa group (Teloschistaceae)
The Caloplaca holocarpa group contains members of the family Teloschistaceae with a strongly reduced thallus and conspicuous yellow, orange or red apothecia and is shown not to form a monophyletic entity, with representatives of other Teloschidaceae with more complex thalli intermixed among them. Expand
Three New, Seemingly-Cryptic Species in the Lichen Genus Caloplaca (Teloschistaceae) Distinguished in Two-Phase Phenotype Evaluation
The three new, seemingly-cryptic species in the lichen genus Caloplaca (Teloschistaceae) with black apothecia are described and can be distinguished phenotypically, allowing for correct identification of at least one species. Expand
New crustose Teloschistaceae in Central Europe
The results show that atranorin is absent in the majority of taxa related to C. areolata, and five new species are fully described using more than a hundred phenotype characters, and diagnostic characters are indicated separately. Expand
The Caloplaca crenulatella species complex; its intricate taxonomy and description of a new species
Caloplaca diffusa, described here as a new species, is a well-supported lineage with a distinctive phenotype in the C. crenulatella complex and a key to the European species of the group is provided. Expand
Absence of anthraquinone pigments is paraphyletic and a phylogenetically unreliable character in the Teloschistaceae
Abstract It has been suggested that the absence of anthraquinones is not a synapomorphic character, but appears independently in unrelated lineages of Teloschistaceae. We analyzed ITS nrDNA regionsExpand
Caloplaca concreticola (Teloschistaceae), a new species from anthropogenic substrata in Eastern Europe
Analysis of nuclear ribosomal ITS sequence data of the new species, together with most European species of the subgenus Pyrenodesmia, supports the recognition of theNew Caloplaca concreticola as a monophyletic taxon within the Pyrenodedmia clade. Expand
Roselliniella lecideae sp. nov. and other interesting lichenicolous fungi from the Northern Black Sea region (Ukraine)
The lichenicolous fungus Roselliniella lecideae sp. nov. on Lecidea fuscoatra is described from Ukraine. It is characterized by globose ostiolate perithecia, 2-3 septate hyaline periphyses,Expand
