The genus Calogaya (Teloschistaceae, Xanthorioideae) was established to accommodate mainly epilithic lichens with lobate thalli, previously regarded as the “Caloplaca saxicola group.” Data supporting the recognition of this new genus came from European lichens, and although the genus is soundly based, we have found in Asia numerous epiphytic lineages and lineages with reduced, non-lobate thallus in dry continental areas. The taxonomic and functional diversity of Calogaya is distinctly higher in… Expand

The lichen family Teloschistaceae in the Altai-Sayan region (Central Asia)
Within the Altai-Sayan region, 103 species of Teloschistaceae are identified from 1193 field records supported by herbarium vouchers and 9 groups of species that may merit recognition as genera are defined. Expand
Phylogenetic revision of South American Teloschistaceae (lichenized Ascomycota, Teloschistales) reveals three new genera and species
This study expanded the sampling of South American taxa and investigated mainly the lobate, sublobate, and squamulose members of Caloplaca s.l., using morphological characters and a molecular phylogeny based on a combined three-locus data set. Expand
Coppinsiella and Seawardiella – two new genera of the Xanthorioideae (Teloschistaceae, lichen-forming Ascomycota)
The genera Coppinsiella and Seawardiella are described based on the combined phylogenetic analysis from ITS nrDNA, 28S nrLSU and 12S mtSSU sequences and the new species SeawARDiella tasmaniensis is described. Expand
New insights into the Usnea cornuta aggregate (Parmeliaceae, lichenized Ascomycota): Molecular analysis reveals high genetic diversity correlated with chemistry.
This study applies an integrative approach based on DNA sequence, chemical, geographic and morphological data to attempt to define species boundaries in the lichen-forming genus Usnea (Parmeliaceae), particularly the U. cornuta aggregate, a cosmopolitan species group and provides the first species delimitation for this group in the neotropics based on the multispecies coalescent (MSC) model.

Phylogenetic generic classification of parmelioid lichens (Parmeliaceae,Ascomycota) based on molecular, morphological and chemical evidence.
An overview of current knowledge of the major clades of all parmelioid lichens is given and 27 genera within nine main clades are accepted, including 31 of 33 currently accepted parMelioid genera (and 63 of 84 accepted genera of Parmeliaceae). Expand
New crustose Teloschistaceae in Central Europe
The results show that atranorin is absent in the majority of taxa related to C. areolata, and five new species are fully described using more than a hundred phenotype characters, and diagnostic characters are indicated separately. Expand
Charcotiana and Amundsenia, two new genera in Teloschistaceae (lichenized Ascomycota, subfamily Xanthorioideae) hosting two new species from continental Antarctica, and Austroplaca frigida, a new name for a continental Antarctic species
Two new genera, Charcotiana and Amundsenia, are proposed in the lichen family Teloschistaceae, subfamily Xanthorioideae, phylogenetically distinct, but poor in morphological characters; the new species consist mainly of minute apothecia in cracks of rocks located in the climatically harshest regions of the Antarctic. Expand
Two new European species from the heterogeneous Caloplaca holocarpa group (Teloschistaceae)
The Caloplaca holocarpa group contains members of the family Teloschistaceae with a strongly reduced thallus and conspicuous yellow, orange or red apothecia and is shown not to form a monophyletic entity, with representatives of other Teloschidaceae with more complex thalli intermixed among them. Expand
A new taxonomy of the family Teloschistaceae
A first phylogenetic evaluation of a large part of the lichen family Teloschistaceae, including a total of 337 species, shows the large plasticity in both morphological and anatomical characters between closely related species within genera, indicating the low value of these as evolutionary markers.

Align or not to align? Resolving species complexes within the Caloplaca saxicola group as a case study
Ph phylogenetic resolution of all or most of the eight species currently included as two distinct subgroups within the C. saxicola group was possible only by combining morphological characters and signal from ambiguously aligned regions with the unambiguously aligned ITS sites or when the entire ITS1 and 2 regions were not aligned a priori and included as an integral component of a Bayesian analysis (BAli-Phy).

Three New, Seemingly-Cryptic Species in the Lichen Genus Caloplaca (Teloschistaceae) Distinguished in Two-Phase Phenotype Evaluation
The three new, seemingly-cryptic species in the lichen genus Caloplaca (Teloschistaceae) with black apothecia are described and can be distinguished phenotypically, allowing for correct identification of at least one species. Expand
The genus Dirina (Roccellaceae, Arthoniales) revisited
Vicariance through plate tectonics and continental drift versus long distance dispersal to explain biogeographical patterns is discussed and phylogenetic hypothesis is presented based on data from four molecular markers. Expand
