Baeomyces carneus Flörke

A lichen of a similar appearance and ecology as the common Baeomyces rufus. The two species differ mainly in their chemical compounds – B. carneus produces norstictic acid, which can be detected in the thallus by a reaction with KOH. It is a boreal-montane species that occurs mainly on acidic exposed soil or on weathered rocks. In central Europe, it is a rare lichen. Lately it has not been reported from the Czech Republic, although in the past it was recorded repeatedly. Possibly, it is overlooked and mistaken for the common B. rufus.
