Agonimia gelatinosa (Ach.) M. Brand & Diederich

Lichen with granular, dark olive to brown thallus and sessile black perithecia. It occurs on more or less calcareous soil in communities of terricolous mosses or on plant debris. Although the species is considered a cold-tolerant with a montane to arctic distribution (optimum around the upper tree line), records from lower elevations are also known. In central Europe, it is more abundant in the Alps and Carpathians, otherwise it is a rare species. Recent Czech records come from the Hrubý Jeseník Mountains, the Prachatice region and the Týřov in the Křivoklát region.
