This paper aims to clarify taxonomy and nomenclature of the lichen Bacidia coprodes and its closest relatives in Europe and North America. Bacidia coprodes as treated in recent works was found to consist of three distinct species in Europe and North America, the correct names of which are B. coprodes ( s. str. ), B. notarisiana , and B. granosa . In addition, a fourth species, B. inornata (Nyl.) Blomb. & Forssell, was found to be closely related to this group of lichens and is also treated here… 

Figures from this paper

Fellhaneropsis almquistiorum sp nov from Europe (Pilocarpaceae, lichenized Ascomycota)

A key to all known, pycnidiate members of Fellhaneropsis is provided and a previously unrecorded pigment is tentatively named here Almquistiorum-yellow, intensely golden yellow in water, does not react with KOH and fades with the addition of HCl or HNO3.

New Estonian records and amendments: Lichenized fungi

One lichenized fungus, Leptogium subtile, has been reported from Estonia earlier, but all the specimens in the herbarium of University of Tartu appeared to be misidentifications; currently the species has one certain locality in Estonia.

Taxonomic novelties and new records of Fennoscandian crustose lichens

We present taxonomic, distributional and ecological notes on Fennoscandian crustose lichens and lichenicolous fungi, based on new collections as well as revision of herbarium material. Two new comb



Bacidia coprodes—resurrecting a misinterpreted species

Morphological and chemical features, together with molecular data, suggest that B. trachona does not belong to Bacidia, but rather in the Pilocarpaceae, and the species is retained in Bacidia.

The corticolous and lignicolous species of Bacidia and Bacidina in North America

This is a taxonomic revision of the corticolous and lignicolous taxa of the genera Bacidia and Bacidina in the continental United States and Canada and describes nine new taxa, including two newly described species.

Two new Bacidia [Ramalinaceae, lichenized Ascomycota] from Antarctica

Another new species, B. rosella (Pers.) De Not, found in the continental and maritime Antarctic has been described here and similarities to other Bacidia with Laurocerasi−brown hypothecium and mostly 3−septate ascospores are discussed.

Molecular phylogeny of the Bacidiaceae (Lecanorales, lichenized Ascomycota)

The phylogeny of the family Bacidiaceae was investigated using 65 nuclear ITS1-5,8S-ITS2 ribosomal DNA sequences, which suggests that the Bacidia beckhausii and B. sabuletorum groups are unrelated to Bacidia s.

Proposal for a Standardized Nomenclature and Characterization Of Insoluble Lichen Pigments

A standardized nomenclature and a procedure similar to the typification of species in systematic botany is proposed in order to avoid ambiguous naming of insoluble lichen pigments.

High performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC), an improved technique for screening lichen substances

High performance thin layer chromatography is a method that can be used for screening lichen substances and has many advantages: It is more sensitive, it is possible to run more samples in a shorter period of time, and the amount of solvent used is much smaller.
