Lathagrium auriforme Coppins & J.R. Laundon

One of the largest genus members in Europe, forming isidiate thalli that significantly increase their volume in humid conditions. Mossy, more or less shaded rocks are its typical habitat. Rarely, it may expand from rocks to mossy tree bases. In Europe, L. auriforme is a widespread, locally common species. In the Czech Republic it is relatively rare and most of its localities are known in karst areas.
