Arctoparmelia centrifuga (L.) Hale

A Nordic species of hard siliceous rocks and boulder screes. In central Europe, it is probably a glacial relict, for example in the Alps it is very rare. However, the range of A. centrifuga is extensive. The species is distributed from arctic to boreal regions of the Northern Hemisphere. In the Czech Republic, it has been currently reported from the ridges of the Krkonoše Mts and from the mountain Luč in the south-west part of the Šumava Mts. Furthermore, it occurs just beyond the borders, on the southern slope of the mountain Trojmezná in the Bavarian Forest. Historically, it has been recorded also in the mountain Ještěd and from the Černostudniční hřbet ridge near Tanvald.
