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 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;">.

A case study from the Sudety Mountains (SW Poland) http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.07 <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> Maria Kossowska Copyright (c) http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.07 Thu, 07 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0300 New and remarkable records of lichenicolous fungi from Ternopil Oblast (Ukraine).

The IUCN Red List system (categories and criteria) were used for that purpose. Most of the assessed taxa were microlichens (163), while five macrolichen species were also evaluated. Among the assessed species, 91 were assigned to the threat categories (Critically Endangered – CR, Endangered – EN and Vulnerable – VU), 17 species were assigned to the category Near Threatened (NT), and 41 species were assigned to the category Least Concerned (LC). Category Data Deficient (DD) was assigned for 17 species and the category Regionally Extinct (RE) for two species. Among the threat categories, 35 species were assigned to the category EN, 34 species to VU, and 22 species to CR. In general, most of the evaluated species (81%, 137 species) were growing on different types of rock, 16% (28 species) of species were growing on soil, mosses or plant debris, and three taxa were growing on other substrata. Most of the threatened epigeic and epilithic microlichens were recorded on alvar grasslands growing on ground, limestone pebbles and flatrock or erratic boulders. Er- ratic boulders in various forest types and calcareous cliffs in clint forest were also important habitats for threatened species. Moreover, different rock substrates of anthropogenic origin (walls, buildings and abandoned limestone quarries) performed as significant habitat type for epilithic species. Bush encroachment of open habitats, especially in semi-natural grasslands, serves as the main threat for epigeic and epilithic lichens.</p> </div> </div> </div> Inga Jüriado, Polina Degtjarenko, Ede Oja, Tiina Randlane Copyright (c) http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.11 Sat, 05 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Updates to the list of Estonian lichenized, lichenicolous and allied fungi http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.12 <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Herewith, we continue to upgrade Estonian checklist of lichenized, lichenicolous and allied fungi and report twelve fungal species as new for Estonia, of them eleven are lichenized and one is lichenicolous fungus.</p> </div> </div> </div> Inga Jüriado, Liis Marmor-Ohtla, Ljudmilla Martin, Tiina Randlane, Ave Suija Copyright (c) http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.12 Sat, 05 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0200 How was the year 2022 for Folia Cryptogamica Estonica? http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.13 <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The current FCE fascicle 59 is full of diverse papers considering new and noteworthy taxon records, updates to red- and checklists, and among other things – lichen biota on hornfels outcrops.</p> </div> </div> </div> Polina Degtjarenko Copyright (c) http://ojs.utlib.ee/index.php/FCE/article/view/fce.2022.59.13 Tue, 29 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +0200
