Caloplaca albolutescens (Nyl.) H. Olivier

A species closely related to the common and widespread C. teicholyta, from which it differs by the absence of marginal thallus lobes. In the Czech Republic, it occurs naturally on outcrops of soft Cretaceous limestones and calcareous sandstones. Apart from the Czech Cretaceous Basin, only a sporadic occurrence on anthropogenic substrates (bricks, plaster, concrete) is known. The species avoids hard limestone rocks in karst areas. In the Czech Republic, it is a relatively rare lichen.
