Lathagrium undulatum (Laurer ex Flot.) Poetsch

A species characteristic by the dark undulate thallus, sometimes covered by globose to squamulose isidia. It occurs on natural limestone rocks, mainly in mountain areas. It is one of the rather rare genus members. There are historical reports on its occurrence close to Beroun, Rokytná u Budkovic and in Obří důl glacial cirque in the Krkonoše Mountains (Černohorský et al. 1956). The last-mentioned locality is the type locality of L. undulatum (Degelius 1954). Its occurrence in the valley of the Rokytná River was confirmed in the 90s by A. Vězda. Recently, it has been recorded on calcareous volcanic rock in the Vltava River valley near Smilovice.
