Clauzadea monticola (Schaer.) Hafellner & Bellem.

The most abundant Czech Clauzadea species that differs from other members of the genus by, e.g., sessile apothecia and small spores (8–12 × 4–6 μm). It prefers limestone or other calcium-rich rock substrates (such as calcareous sandstones, extrusive rocks, slates), including anthropogenic substrates (such as concrete or mortar). It is a pioneer species growing on a wide range of habitats, usually not sun-exposed, from lowlands to mountains. It is distributed all over Europe. In the Czech Republic, it is quite rare, occurring mainly in areas with calcareous rocks.
