P.C.Chen in Poland is confirmed. The species is known from a single record from the Western Tatra Mountains in the Polish Western Carpathians. A description and illustrations of the Polish material of this species is provided and its distribution mapped. Taxonomic and nomenclatural comments on <em>B. alpigenum</em> are presented and its global geographical distribution is reviewed. This species was first recognised as a variety, <em>Didymodon rubellus</em> var. <em>dentatus</em> Schimp., in 1860 by W. P. Schimper. It was subsequently described in 1882 by J. Juratzka as <em>Didymodon alpigenus</em> Jur., and its name should be ascribed to Juratzka alone, not to Venturi as suggested in Index muscorum and <em>D. alpigenus</em> Jur. is the basionym of <em>Bryoerythrophyllum alpigenum</em>. The epithet <em>alpigenus</em> appeared in the literature for the first time as <em>Trichostomum alpigenum</em> Venturi in Pfeffer’s work of 1869 dealing with the mosses of the Rhaetian Alps, but the name was not validly published under Art. 36.1, because Pfeffer did not accept it. Likewise, the name <em>Didymodon alpigenus</em> was not validly published by Venturi ten years later under Art. 38.1, because no description or diagnosis or a reference to a previously and effectively published description or diagnosis were provided. The current statistics of the moss flora of Poland is given. Since the publication of the catalogue of Polish mosses in 2003, some 17 species, one subspecies and three varieties of moss have been added to and two species were excluded from the moss flora of Poland, so currently some 715 species, nine subspecies and 90 varieties are known to occur in the country.</p> </div> </div> </div> Ryszard Ochyra Copyright (c) 2020 Folia Cryptogamica Estonica Tue, 20 Oct 2020 13:32:29 +0300 New and noteworthy lichenicolous and bryophylous fungi from the Ukrainian Carpathians <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Nine species, <em>Acremonium rhabdosporum, Arthonia digitatae, Bryocentria metzgeriae, Diplolaeviopsis</em> cf. <em>symmictae, Skyttea gregaria, Rhymbocarpus pubescens, Stromatopogon cladoniae, Tremella cetrariicola</em> and <em>Xenonectriella subimperspicua</em>, are newly reported for Ukraine. <em>Sphinctrina anglica</em> is recollected for the first time since 1955. <em>Parmelia saxatilis</em> and <em>Parmelina pastillifera</em> are new host species for <em>X. subimperspicua</em>.</p> </div> </div> </div> Valeriy Darmostuk, Alexander Khodosovtsev, Jan Vondrak, Olha Sira Copyright (c) Wed, 16 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0200 Two new Bacidina species (Lecanorales, Ascomycota) from Pakistan <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><em>Bacidina margallensis</em> and <em>B. iqbalii</em> from Pakistan are described and illustrated. Phylogeny of ITS nrDNA region confirms their position within the genus <em>Bacidina</em>, and morphological data make them distinct from other known species of the genus. Based on molecular data, corticolous <em>Bacidina margallensis</em> appears to be a sister species to <em>B. chloroticula</em>, but morphologically, when dry, is the most similar to known from Europe <em>B. mendax</em> because of the granular and warted greenish grey thallus, whitish-cream to dark brown and often piebald apothecia. It differs from that species by shorter, wider and less septate ascospores; 1–3-septate in <em>B. margallensis</em> vs 3–5(6)-septate in <em>B. mendax</em>, and by unusual parrot-green colour of wet thallus. Saxicolous <em>Bacidina iqbalii</em> is closely related to <em>B. neosquamulosa</em> but differs in having crustaceous thallus, transculent when wet entirely pale apothecia, larger asci and less septate large ascospores.</p> </div> </div> </div> Maham Fatima, Kamran Habib, Paweł Czarnota, Abdul Nasir Khalid Copyright (c) Thu, 17 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0200
