A terricolous species in the lichen genus Collema is described from c. 4000 m altitude in the paramos of northern Ecuador. It appears to belong in the north-western Andean element and to be a vicariant of the arctic-alpine Collema ceraniscum which has a similar ecology. The rarity of the genus in the Andes is pointed out, for which there is no obvious reason. However, some new records from Ecuador are added: C. fasciculare (found at c. 4300 m, its highest recorded locality) and C. tenax s.lat…

Additions to the Cyanolichens of the Andes
A further specimen of “Collema” paramense is recorded from paramos at above 4000 m, confirming its relationship with Collema ceraniscum which recently has been transferred to the genus Rostania.
Rostania revised: testing generic delimitations in Collemataceae (Peltigerales, Lecanoromycetes)
Using DNA sequence data from the mitochondrial SSU rDNA and two nuclear protein-coding genes and utilizing parsimony, maximum likelihood and Bayesian phylogenetic methods, Rostania is shown to be non-monophyletic in the current sense.
