High photobiont diversity associated with the euryoecious lichen‐forming ascomycete Lecanora rupicola (Lecanoraceae, Ascomycota)
The diversity and phylogenetic position of photobionts in the widespread saxicolous, crustose lichen-forming asco- mycete Lecanora rupicola s.l. is presented. The algal partners of this lichenExpand

New insights into classification and evolution of the Lecanoromycetes (Pezizomycotina, Ascomycota) from phylogenetic analyses of three ribosomal RNA- and two protein-coding genes.
The Lecanoromycetes includes most of the lichen-forming fungal species (> 13500) and is therefore one of the most diverse class of all Fungi in terms of phenotypic complexity. We report phylogeneticExpand
