Lecanora barkmaniana Aptroot & Herk

Usually a sterile, sorediate and easily overlooked Lecanora species that grows on broad-leaved trees (typically on oaks) in the open countryside and in forests (usually well-lit). It also tolerates relatively eutrophic habitats. Its occurrence is typically subatlantic – its abundant growth is recorded in Western Europe, rarely in Central. From the Czech Republic, it has been mentioned only from the Třeboň region so far.
