Biatora pontica Printzen & Tønsberg

This usually sterile sorediate species of humid deciduous forests has only recently been recorded in the Czech Republic in preserved alluvial forests of southern Moravia. Its actual distribution is expected to be more extensive. However, at lower elevations, where its occurrence is most probable, forests are often degraded by eutrophication and intensive management, not very lichenologically attractive and generally unexplored. We will be able to better evaluate the abundance and occurrence of this species in the future. At the sites, where this Biatora is present, its populations are usually large.
