Bilimbia lobulata (Sommerf.) Hafellner & Coppins

A species of Bilimbia characteristic by its light grey, granulose to squamulose thallus, squamules with dark centres, and aggregated rounded apothecia. It grows on calcareous soil, bryophytes and plant detritus, often in rock crevices. It exhibits a considerable affinity to calcareous rocks and soils of colder areas. Therefore, in central Europe it is linked mainly to limestone mountains, where it can be even a common species. However, there is a lack of suitable habitats in the Czech Republic, so B. lobulata is rare in the country. All the recently published records come from the Hrubý Jeseník Mts and the Český kras karst region.
