Abstract New collections of six Squamarina species from type localities in China were studied. The comparison of morphological characteristics and secondary metabolites with those of the type specimens and phylogenetic analyses suggest that S. callichroa and S. pachyphylla belong to Rhizoplaca, S. semisterilis belongs to Lobothallia and S. chondroderma should be retained in Lecanora temporarily. Only two species, S. kansuensis and S. oleosa, remain in Squamarina. The new combinations… Expand

A Molecular Phylogeny of the Lichen Genus Lecidella Focusing on Species from Mainland China
The phylogenetic analyses support traditional species delimitation based on morphological and chemical traits in most but not all cases, and indicate that cryptic species might be hidden under these names. Expand
Three species of umbilicate lichen genus Rhizoplaca have been known in the Holarctic region so far, such as Rh. melanophthalma (Ram.) Leuckert et Poelt, Rh. chrysoleuca (Sm.) Zopf, and Rh. peltataExpand
Cephalodiate Arten der GattungLecidea sensu lato (Ascomycetes lichenisati)
It is shown that the ability to produce cephalodia is usually a genus-specific character in lichens, and the species of theLecidea alpestris-group form an independent genus, probably near toAustroleciaHertel. Expand

Thirteen lichen species from 7 genera have been identified from Bario. The major metabolites present in these species were determined by thin-layer chromatography (TLC) and high performance liquidExpand
Squamarina scopulorum (Lecanoraceae), a new lichen species from Norway
The new species Squamarina scopulorum Haugan & Timdal (sect. Petroplaca) is described from Norway. It differs from the sympatric and morphologically closely similar species S. magnussonii and S.Expand
The 2016 classification of lichenized fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota – Approaching one thousand genera
The phylogenetic position of the 39 orders containing lichenized fungi suggests 20–30 independent lichenization events during the evolution of higher Fungi, 14–23 in the Ascomycota and 6–7 in the Basidiomycota. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the genus Stereocaulon (Stereocaulaceae, lichenized ascomycetes).
P phylogenetic relationships of the genus Stereocaulon were examined using DNA sequences from the ITS1-5.8 S-ITS2 rDNA gene cluster and from the protein-coding beta-tubulin gene, and the results support the inclusion of the crustose species and Muhria in StereOCaulon, while the current infrageneric classification is not supported.

The identity of the lichens Siphula himalayensis and Lecanora teretiuscula
The development of a fruticose habit by normally crustose genera and species growing under extreme environmental conditions is discussed briefly and the chemical constituents of this lichen include usnic acid, zeorin, traces of methylplacodiolic acid, some fatty acids and, frequently in Asian specimens, porphyrilic acid.
