Range extension of Relicina subabstrusa (Parmeliaceae, lichenized Ascomycota) in Argentina and its distribution pattern in the Neotropics

  journal={Check List},
Relicina subabstrusa is known from a few scattered records in the Neotropics. This species lacks any propagules and has a black lower surface and coronate apothecia. This paper extends the known distributional range of R. subabstrusa in Argentina and maps its geographic distribution in the Neotropics. Notes on similar taxa and an updated key for the identification of the Neotropical species of the genus are provided.

Generic concepts in parmelioid lichens, and the phylogenetic value of characters used in their circumscription

It is concluded that characters related to thallus form or chemical products prove to be less informative at the generic level than has sometimes been assumed.

A monograph of the lichen genus Relicina (Parmeliaceae)

The genus Relicina, a generic segregate of Parmelia characterized by having bulbate cilia on the lobe margins and by producing usnic acid in the cortex, is considered to be of fairly recent origin but rather conservative in terms of morphological and chemical evolution.
