Cheiromycina flabelliformis B. Sutton

The type species of the genus, characterized by an inconspicuous crustose thallus with cushion-like pale sporodochia composed of branched conidia. From the similar C. petri it differs, e.g., in enlarged conidiogenous ce­lls.

It grows on bases of deciduous and coniferous trees, also on wood, in humid, often well-preserved, old-growth forest at higher elevations. Its overall European distribution range lies from the boreal to the temperate subcontinental zone. In the Czech Republic, the lichen was first published from the Orlické hory Mts (Halda 1999). Later, it was also found in the Šumava and Novohradské hory Mts.
