Lichen symbioses represent a major way of life among the Fungi. Almost one-fifth of all known fungal species are lichenized, and about 1500 species of lichens contain cyanobacterial photobionts, most of which belong to the genus Nostoc . Despite extensive studies, many basic aspects of their biology remain poorly known, especially cyanobiont diversity and specificity ([1][1]). Cyanolichen specimens were collected from northern Europe, western North America, and central China. Epiphytic lichen… Expand
