New species of Roccellinastrum with an emendation of the genus

  title={New species of Roccellinastrum with an emendation of the genus},
  author={Aino Henssen and G. Vobis and Bernd Renner},
  journal={Nordic Journal of Botany},
The genus Roccellinastrum Follm. emend. Henssen & Vobis is placed in the Lecideaceae. Two new species are described, R. epiphyllum Henssen & Vobis, from Chile and R. neglectum Henssen & Vobis, from New Zealand and Tasmania. The new combination R. candidum (Mull. Arg.) Henssen is proposed. Roccellinastrum is characterized by apothecia of diverse shape without a proper margin, and a developmental morphology corresponding to that of the Lecanorales, by small amyloid asci, branched paraphyses and… Expand
Thermutopsis Jamesii L, A New Member of the Lichinaceae From Antigua
The cyanobiont is a poorly lichenized species of Tolypothrix; the fructifications arise within the the gelatinous sheath of the algal filaments. Expand
The genusJarmania, based on the single speciesJ. tristis, is described. The new genus is characterized by a byssoid-leprose thallus, immarginate apothecia, asci of theBacidia-type, stronglyExpand
Sagenidiopsis , A New Genus Of Byssoid Lichenized Fungi
The genus Sagenidiopsis gen. nov. of uncertain family in the order Opegraphales is erected for a byssoid lichen which occurs in the cool temperate rainforests of the Macpherson Range of easternExpand
Auriculora byssomorpha, a tropical lichen with a remarkable developmental morphology
The thallus, pycnidia, and the structure and ontogeny of the ascocarp in Auriculora byssomorpha are described and illustrated. The ontogeny of the apothecia is characterized by the repeated formationExpand
Herpothallon inopinatum (Arthoniaceae), a New Lichen Species from Mexico
Herpothallon inopinatum most closely resembles H. pustulatum, but differs in the absence of pustules, while H. rubrocinctum has distinct bright-red pseudoisidia and a bright- red pigmentation of pro- and hypothallus. Expand
Crypthonia, a new genus of byssoid Arthoniaceae (lichenised Ascomycota)
The new genus Crypthonia with 11 species is characterised by a weakly gelatinised, hydrophobic hymenium of paraphysoids, a chemistry of mainly β-orcinol depsidones and tridepsides including psoromic, norstictic, and gyrophoric acids. Expand
Gomphillus caribaeus Belongs in the New Genus Bryogomphus (Lecanorales: Pilocarpaceae)
A revision of the lichen genus Gomphillus Nyl reveals that G. caribaeus W. R. Buck does not belong in that genus, but is a member of the Pilocarpaceae in the Lecanorales, and the new genus Bryogomphus is established for it. Expand
This list records 633 lichen species plus 22 infraspecific taxa in 173 genera from Tasmania and the Bass Strait islands. Fourteen species are new records for Tasmania: Arthroraphis citrinella,Expand
Systematics of Lichenized Fungi
By means of mathematical analysis of lobe division during thallus enlargement in Xanthoria elegans and Diploioia eanesoens, a new morphological parameter was found: the ratio lobe length to widthExpand

The Species of Chrysothrix
There are three chemotypes of Chrysothrix candelaris, one of which is probably of hybrid origin, and all bright yellow, leprose, sterile lichens with pulvinic acid derivatives, formerly included in Lepraria and Crocynia, are referred to the genus. Expand
The families of bitunicate ascomycetes
In a transitional classification of the Ascomycetes, 109 monophyletic entities (clades) are recognized and the name Lecanidiaceae is proposed to replace Patellariaceae Corda, and Cyanoder–mella to replace Cyanoderma Hohn. Expand
The Lecanoralean Centrum
The Lecanorales are considered to be the typical lichenized discomycetes, including most of the lichen families with fruit bodies in the form of apothecia, and the majority of the large fruticose lichens belong to this group. Expand
