Abstract Agonimia flabelliformis sp. nov. (Verrucariaceae, Ascomycota) is described as a new species from the Czech Republic, Germany and Great Britain. Except for the distinctive, flabelliform to minutely coralloid thallus the species mostly resembles A. allobata. It differs from other related species of Agonimia in the absence of cortical papillae and in ascospore size. The distinctness of the new species and its placement within the genus Agonimia is supported by analyses of mitochondrial… 
Distributional and other data for some Agonimia species Verrucariales, lichenized Ascomycota.
A treatment of five Agonimia species occurring in Austria is presented. Distributional data for many further countries are included. Agonimia tristicula is newly recorded for Liechtenstein and
A New Lichenized Fungus, Psoroglaena humidosilvae, from a Forested Wetland of Korea, with a Taxonomic Key to the Species of Psoroglaena
Molecular analyses employing internal transcribed spacer (ITS), mitochondrial small subunit (mtSSU), and nuclear large subunit ribosomal RNA (LSU) sequences strongly support P. humidosilvae as a nonidentical species in the genus Psoroglaena.
Psoroglaena halmaturina sp. nov. (lichenised Ascomycota, Verrucariaceae) from Kangaroo Island, South Australia
A new lichen species, Psoroglaena halmaturina P.M. McCarthy & Kantvilas (Verrucariaceae), is described from the bark of trees in remnant mallee and Melaleuca thicket on Kangaroo Island, South

Notes for genera: Ascomycota
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Agonimia species and other rare lichens in Central Poland
Eight lichen species are presented, four of them new to Central Poland and three of them very rare in the Świetokrzyskie Mts and in Central Poland.
Pyrenocarpous lichens (except Trypetheliaceae) in Rondônia
The high lichen diversity is explained by the poor soils, supporting an only moderately dense forest where enough light can reach the tree trunks at ground level to support a rich flora of crustose lichens usually confined to the upperunks.
Additions to the lichen flora of the Kerzhensky Nature Reserve and Nizhny Novgorod Region
The results of field studies of the lichen flora of the Kerzhensky Reserve (Nizhny Novgorod Region), carried out mainly in the Kerzhenets River valley in May 2019, are presented and some very rare species are found.
New records of lichens and lichenicolous fungi from the Tver Region
Eight species of lichens and five parasitic (mainly lichenicolous) fungi are reported for the first time for the Tver Region. The lichens Bacidina neosquamulosa and Bellemerea cinereorufescens are


Phylogenetic placement of some morphologically unusual members of Verrucariales
The phylogenetic relationship of Flakea and Normandina with other lineages in Verrucariaceae remains elusive with the authors' multilocus dataset, and sequence data of protein-coding loci are required to increase phylogenetic resolution because morphological evolution seems to be dynamic inVerrucariales.
Molecular data confirm the position of Flakea papillata in the Verrucariaceae
Analysis of the nuclear large and small subunits rRNA sequence data of samples from different origins supports the position of F. papillata within the Verrucariaceae: it forms its own supported clade not related to the core of Agonimia, in which it has been previously placed.

The Lecidea granulosa group is referred to Trapeliopsis, necessitating four new combinations, T. aeneofusca (Florke ex Flotow), T. flexuosa (Fr.) comb, nov., T. gelatinosa ( Florke) comb.
The variety of fungal-algal symbioses, their evolutionary significance, and the nature of lichens
The variety of fungal-algal symbioses, their evolutionary significance, aad the nature of lichens are described, and a revised definition to exclude 'mycophycobioses' is proposed, and the terms 'phycotype' and 'parasymbiont' are rejected.
ITS primers with enhanced specificity for basidiomycetes ‐ application to the identification of mycorrhizae and rusts
ITS1‐F/ITS4‐B preferential amplification was shown to be particularly useful for detection and analysis of the basidiomycete component in ectomycorrhizae and in rust‐infected tissues.

Pcr Primers for the Amplification of Mitochondrial Small Subunit Ribosomal DNA of Lichen-forming Ascomycetes
Four primers for the amplification of mitochondrial DNA of lichenforming ascomycetes match the conserved regions U2, U4, and U6, respectively, of mitochondrial small subunit (SSU) ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and suggest that mitochondrial SSU rDNA may be useful for phylogenetic analyses of Lichen-formingAscomyCetes.
