Eopyrenula leucoplaca (Wallr.) R.C. Harris

A lichen in the form of an inconspicuous but characteristic thin white crust with black pycnidia and perithecia. It occurs on bark of various deciduous trees in as well as outside forests (for example in parks). In Central Europe, it is currently quite rare. Though there is only little published data from the Czech Republic (e.g. from Soutok and Pálava in the Břeclav region), recent findings suggest the species may be locally common in well-preserved lowland forests.
