Cetraria aculeata (Schreb.) Fr.

A relatively common terricolous species, growing in the Czech Republic from lowlands to mountains on nutrient-poor sandy soils in dry grasslands, heathlands, open forests and even on a bare soil. Its range is nearly cosmopolitan. Although it occurs in all zones except for tropics, the most common it is in the temperate. According to a recent study (Lutsak et al. 2020) both newly recognised subspecies, the nominate one and subsp. steppae, occur in the country. The second mentioned subspecies differs in a thicker cortex and norstictic acid content, which is completely absent in C. aculeata.
