Hypogymnia farinacea Zopf

In contrast to other Czech members of the genus, Hypogymnia farinacea usually has a large thallus and soralia on the area of lobes, not on their margins. Its range covers western Eurasia, western North America and eastern Africa. In Europe, the species is widespread across boreal and mountain areas, where it grows on acidic bark of both coniferous and deciduous wooden plants, less often also on wood and rocks. In the Czech Republic, it may be found mainly in mountain forests, where it is locally abundant. Individual records are known also from lower elevations.
