Carbonea vitellinaria (Nyl.) Hertel

A species obligately growing on thalli of Candelariella species on various types of siliceous rocks, mainly at higher elevations. It does not form a thallus; only black apothecia are present. In Europe, it is widely distributed, as well as its hosts, but cannot be considered abundant. In the Czech Republic, there are historical records from thalli of C. vitellina from the Česká Lípa region (Anders 1922) and a couple of current findings (the Krkonoše Mts, the Slavkovský les and České středohoří highlands).
