Abstract A set of artificial keys is presented to all those crustose lichens (except most species of Lepraria and Leprolomd) which commonly occur without fruiting bodies on rock or soil in the British Isles. A number of predominantly corticolous species that occasionally also occur on rocks are included, as well as several undescribed but well-understood entities. 

New and interesting lichen records from the Ural Mountains, Russia

Ten species of lichenized ascomycetes are reported from the Urals, many of which are new to Russia and considerably extend the ranges or fill gaps in the formerly disjunctive distributions of these species.

Chirleja buckii, a new genus and species of lichenized-fungi from Tierra del Fuego, southern South America

Chirleja, a new genus of lichenized-fungi, is described to represent a previously unknown lineage within the family Icmadophilaceae characterized by the production of sporodochia and a sterile dimorphic thallus that resembles the unrelated genus Leprocaulon.

Lecanora layana (Lecanoraceae), a new sorediate species widespread in temperate eastern North America

This species is sorediate and both morphologically and chemically similar to L. nothocaesiella, differing in the production of stictic acid in addition to atranorin and zeorin.

New species in Tetramelas

Three species are added to the recently reintroduced genus Tetramelas, T. chloroleucus comb. nov., T. confusus sp. nov. and T. granulosus comb. nov. Tetramelas confusus was first reported under the

Micarea micrococca and M. prasina, the first assessment of two very similar species in eastern North America

Though overlapping, goniocyst size also appears to correlate with chemistry, a character that has not previously been explored in studies of this group.

Phylogeny and Taxonomy of an Enigmatic Sterile Lichen

The utility of a systematic methodology that combines molecular and non-molecular characters to place and circumscribe species of asexually reproducing lichens that are typically sterile is demonstrated.

Rinodina brauniana (Physciaceae, Teloschistales), a new species with pseudoisidia from the southern Appalachian Mountains of eastern North America

Ulastructural studies of the pseudoisidia in R. brauniana demonstrated that they are apically ecorticate and thus unlike vegetative reproductive structures in other Rinodina species, which differs from R. colobinoides in its pseudoisidiate, rather than blastidiate thallus.


Abstract Despite a large body of work on the serpentine-substrate effect on vascular plants, little work has been undertaken to describe lichen communities growing on serpentine soils derived from

Salix herbacea L. *

Salix herbacea is the smallest of the British willows. It is a dioecious, prostrate, dwarf shrub with an extensive ramifying system of tough, branched, underground rhizomes, forming loose, flattened



A New Crustose Stereocaulon From the Mountains of Scotland and Wales

Abstract The new combination Stereocaulon plicatile (Leight.) Fryday & Coppins is made for a previously enigmatic crustose lichen with submuriform ascospores; the basionym, Lecidea plicatilis

Further Notes on European Taxa of the Lichen Genus Leptogium, with Emphasis on the SmallSpecies

Abstract Leptogium imbricatum P.M. Jorg. sp. nov. and L. intermedium (Arnold)Arnold are established as the correct names for two fairly widespread, small species:L. imbricatum has an arctic–alpine

New or Interesting British Lichens: 1

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.

Foliicolous Lichens From Madeira, with the Description of a New Genus and two New species and a World-Wide key of Foliicolous Fellhanera

Abstract A preliminary annotated list of the foliicolous lichens and of their lichenicolous fungi occurring in the laurisilva in Madeira is presented. Fellhaneropsis Séerus. & Coppins gen. nov. is

A taxonomic study of Ropalospora chlorantha, and a comparison between Ropalospora and Fuscidea

The purpose of this paper is to show that B. chlorantha is unrelated to Bacidia in the strict sense and should be referred to Ropalospora Massal, a genus of lichenized Ascomycotina comprised offive species.
