Cetrelia cetrarioides (Delise ex Duby) W. L. Culb. & C. F. Culb.

A less common epiphytic species, growing mainly on deciduous trees and shrubs, from uplands to mountains. Lately, it has been found in both old-growth forests and open agricultural landscape on Prunus spinosa and Crataegus sp. Alike the other members of the genus, also * C. cetrarioides* is sensitive to air pollution. The history of its occurrence in the Czech Republic is little known, as it used not to be distinguished from the species C. monachorum (mainly). Based on the detailed revision of the material from the Alps (Obermayer & Mayrhofer 2007), this species was recognised as the second most common genus member at elevations between 1000 and 1200 in the southeastern part of central Europe. In the Czech Republic the situation is probably similar.
