Candelariella efflorescens R.C. Harris & W.R. Buck

An epiphytic lichen with a yellow sorediate thallus. The species may be securely identified by the number of ascospores (12–32) in asci. However, the determination is largely complicated by the fact that apothecia are formed only rarely. The sterile thallus is undistinguishable from the very similar C. xanthostigmoides, producing asci with 8 ascospores. The distribution and ecology of this taxon are not well known. Probably, the lichen is common, growing mainly on a lit bark of deciduous trees both in forest and in open landscape.
