According to Art. F.5.4 ICN the names were published in 2021 invalidly because the author did not provide a registration number in MycoBank.</p> 2022-04-01T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) Five lichen species new to Poland 2022-06-30T15:04:25+03:00 Maria Kossowska Dariusz Kubiak Agnieszka Kowalewska Wiesław Fałtynowicz Martin Kukwa <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><em>Athallia cerinelloides</em>, <em>Caloplaca ulcerosa</em>, <em>Flavoplaca arcis</em>, <em>Lecanora sinuosa</em> and <em>Sclerophora amabilis</em> are reported for the first time from Poland.

Two taxa new for Pakistan, i.e., <em>Physciella chloanta</em> and <em>Xanthoparmelia protomatrae </em>s. l., were found in the collection while <em>Physconia enteroxantha</em> represent range extensions within Pakistan. Morpho-anatomical descriptions, ecology and distribution are provided.</p> 2022-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) New records of lichens and allied fungi from the Leningrad Region, Russia. XII 2022-06-30T15:20:46+03:00 Dmitry E. Himelbrant Irina S. Stepanchikova Andrei Tsurykau Mikhail P. Andreev <p>Three lichen species and eight lichenicolous fungi were recorded for the first time for St. Petersburg or Eastern Leningrad Region. In addition, the protected species <em>Lobaria scrobiculata</em> was rediscovered in the Leningrad Region. The lichenicolous fungus <em>Arthonia parietinaria</em> is new to Russia, and two species, <em>Didymocyrtis melanelixiae</em> and <em>Tremella everniae</em>, are new for European Russia.</p> 2022-06-30T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) Additions and changes to the species list of Estonian bryophytes 2022-07-07T14:26:25+03:00 Nele Ingerpuu Loore Ehrlich Mare Leis Tiiu Kupper Leiti Kannukene Kai Vellak <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Since the last additions (Vellak et al., 2021), four new species should be added to the list. Two of these (</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Calypogeia fissa</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Timmia austriaca</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">) are new finds, two (</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hedwigia emodica</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Syntrichia ruraliformis</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">) were earlier known as varieties in Estonia. One species (</span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Seligeria patula</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">) should be excluded from the list since the voucher specimen was re-identified as </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">S. calcarea</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and no other specimens were found among all collected specimens of genus </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Seligeria </span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">in Estonian herbaria and during inventories of genus </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Seligeria </span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">at all known localities in Estonia in 2020-2021. The number of species in Estonian bryoflora is now 615. The distribution and threats on the new species in Estonia are not known yet and need further inventories, thus all are evaluated here as data deficient (DD).</span> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Estonian names for all new species are presented in parenthesis and the distribution and ecology is briefly discussed.</span></p> 2022-07-07T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) Pleochaeta indica, a new record of powdery mildew from Pakistan 2022-07-07T14:33:54+03:00 Najam-ul-Sehar Afshan Irsa Zafar Nida Liaqat Abdul Nasir Khalid <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A comprehensive study of a powdery mildew observed on leaves of </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Celtis tetrandra</span></em> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Roxb.</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> was carried out by the authors. The symptoms appeared as white mycelium on leaves with embedded small black to brown spherical ascomata. Infected plants were collected from Thandiani (District Abbottabad, Division Hazara) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan, during a phytopathogenic survey in 2019. The causal agent was observed and identified on the basis of morphological and molecular analyses, which reveals that this fungus belongs to genus </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Pleochaeta</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">. Further investigation identified it as </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Pleochaeta indica</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">. This is the first report of a powdery mildew infection caused by this pathogen in Pakistan. A complete description and illustrations of the fungus are presented.</span></p> 2022-07-07T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) Hornfels rocks as a habitat for saxicolous lichen biota. A case study from the Sudety Mountains (SW Poland) 2022-07-07T14:37:46+03:00 Maria Kossowska <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The results of lichenological studies on hornfels outcrops in the Izerskie Mountains (Sudetes, SW Poland) are presented. This substrate is connected with the igneous intrusion into the country rocks and is characterized by a richer chemical and mineral composition than the surrounding rock bodies. In the six analyzed sites, a total of 48 saxicolous lichen species were found. Hornfels as a substrate for lichen vegetation is distinguished by the presence of lichens typical for rocks rich in metal compounds, in the study area represented by </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rhizocarpon oederi</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lecidea silacea</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Porpidia melinodes</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, and lichens that prefer mineral-enriched rocks, like </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lecanora campestris</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">L. rupicola</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lecidea fuscoatra</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Porpidia cinereoatra</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Rimularia gibbosa</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">. The three mentioned metallophilous species are </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">some of the rarest components of the lichen biota in Poland, known from single localities. Other rare and locally endangered lichens recorded on hornfels include </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Lambiella furvella</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">, </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Stereocaulon dactylophyllum</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">Umbilicaria pustulata</span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">.</span></p> 2022-07-07T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c)
