Three new species of Lichenopeltella are described based on recent floristic work on lichens and lichenicolous fungi in the Pacific Northwest, bringing the total number of species recognized in North America to six. All three newly described species grow on epiphytic crustose lichens: Lichenopeltella biatorae grows on Biatora flavopunctata (British Columbia, Washington), L. arctomiae on Arctomia delicatula (Montana) and L. leprosulae on Myochroidea leprosula (British Columbia). The new species…

Lichenopeltella mizerniana sp. nov. from the upper Pliocene of Mizerna (southern Poland)
The presence of Lichenopeltella mizerniana suggests that the Pliocene climate of the Mizerna locality was probably at least moderately humid, and a new fossil-species of this genus is proposed.
New Records and Range Extensions of Rare Lichens from Waterfalls and Sprayzones in Inland British Columbia, Canada
Abstract. The importance of waterfalls and Whitewater for lichen diversity is well known among field lichenologists but seldom has it been documented in the literature. We call attention here to a
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Recent literature on lichens—216
There are big microclimatic differences between the exposures in the epiphytic habitats and the different location into the forest, which is reflected in the composition and cover of the epIPhytic lichen species.
