Cetrelia monachorum (Zahlbr.) W. L. Culb. & C. F. Culb.

Currently, the most abundant of the three Czech Cetrelia species. After a detailed revision, it has been recognised as the most common genus member in southeastern part of central Europe, being most abundant above 800 m (Obermayer & Mayrhofer 2007). Alike other genus members, it grows on deciduous trees and shrubs from uplands to mountains in well-preserved forests and less often in an open landscape. It is sensitive to air pollution and substrate acidification. The history of its occurrence in the Czech Republic is little known, as it used not to be distinguished from the species C. cetrarioides (mainly). Most of its current localities are in south Bohemia.
