Lecanora aitema (Ach.) Hepp

A little-known taxon from the L. symmicta group. Its findings come mainly from mountain locations of our borderlands, where it occurs in well-lit places, especially on acidic bark (e.g. Sorbus) and twigs of conifers or shrubs (e.g. Vaccinium uliginosum). It is usually found on hard treated wood (railings, fences). From chemically similar *L. symmicta it differs, in the current broad sense, practically only in the dark pigmentation of fruiting bodies. The taxonomic value of this species, as well as the delimitation of taxa within the broadly defined species *L. symmicta, will need to be further studied in the future.
