Flavoparmelia soredians (Nyl.) Hale

The smaller of the two Czech Flavoparmelia species. It differs from F. caperata in the flattened to slightly raised soralia, smooth soredia and the content of salazinic acid. It is an epiphytic or less often saxicolous, sun-loving species. From the Czech Republic, it has been reported from various deciduous trees and shrubs in open habitats, well-lit forests, and larch monocultures. The species has spread throughout the country relatively recently – it was first recorded in western Bohemia in 2010. Several records from the western part of the country have followed possibly as a consequence of spreading in Germany in the last decades. The species range has expanded towards the east and north probably in reaction to climate changes. In the past, it occurred in Europe only in the western and southern coastal countries. Its overall range covers Europe, Africa, South America and New Zealand.
