Acrocordia salweyi (Leight. ex Nyl.) A.L. Sm.

This pyrenocarpous lichen has a submerged light thallus, conspicuous dark perithecia and big 1-septate spores. It grows in both natural and anthropogenic habitats, on shaded calcareous substrates, such as on stone walls and calcareous sandstones. The European distribution of A. salweyi is Atlantic-Mediterranean. Therefore, in the central Europe it is very rare. In the Czech Republic, it was reported only once, by A. Vězda in 1955, from a calcareous-siliceous paragneiss rock in Šumárník, in the Hrubý Jeseník Mts.
