Fellhanera viridisorediata Aptroot, M. Brand & Spier

A lichen usually found in a form of a sorediate, sterile, gray-green coating on thin spruce twigs (including needles) or on Vaccinium myrtillus. It often occurs in communities or synusia with other facultatively foliicolous species, F. bouteillei and F. subtilis. Fellhanera viridisorediata was described in the new millennium and in the Czech Republic, it was first recorded in 2010 (Malíček et al. 2014). Since then, it has been found in dozens of localities mainly in the western part of the country with the highest concentration in the Šumava Mts. Probably, it is a spreading species, easily overlooked in a sterile stage, and it is likely to occur also in the eastern part of the country.
