Japewiella dollypartoniana, a New Widespread Lichen in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern North America

  title={Japewiella dollypartoniana, a New Widespread Lichen in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern North America},
  author={Jessica L. Allen and James C. Lendemer},
ABSTRACT Japewiella dollypartoniana is described as new to science based on material from the Appalachian Mountains and adjacent regions of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. It is distinguished from other species of Japewia and Japewiella by its sorediate thallus and production of norstictic acid. Placement in Japewiella is supported by characters from fertile populations discovered in the Unicoi Mountains of western North Carolina which have apothecia that resemble those of Japewia tornoënsis (Nyl…
