The new species Gyalectidium aurelii is described from leaves of Meliaceae collected in Chapada dos Guimaraes, in the State of Mato Grosso, Brazil. The new taxon is characterized by very broad, marginal hyphophores with scales that project horizontally from the leaf margin and are closely appressed to the substrate. G. aurelii is distinguished from similar species, such as G. fantasticum and G. paolae, by its hyphophores being incurved (following the thallus outline) and having an entire margin…

Phylogeny and systematics of the lichen family Gomphillaceae (Ostropales) inferred from cladistic analysis of phenotype data

The phylogeny of the lichen family Gomphillaceae was reconstructed by parsimony analysis of a phenotype data matrix including ecological, thallus, apothecial, and hyphophore characters by accepting both monophyletic clades and paraphyletic grades.
