Cheiromycina petri D. Hawksw. & Poelt

Little known inconspicuous crustose lichen which forms sporodochia. From the related C. flabelliformis, it mainly differs in minute conidiogenous cells. In Europe, it is rare but widely distributed from the boreal to temperate zone. It grows on the bark of deciduous trees in humid forests. It had only recently been discovered in the Czech Republic (the Šumava Mts) and published in a molecular study of the genus (Muggia et al. 2017). Another collection, yet unpublished, comes from the Novohradské hory Mts.
