Lecanora carpinea (L.) Vain.

Under this name, data relating to a very similar and related species L. leptyrodes have been published in the past, which differs in the cortex character. Therefore, it is not possible to distinguish both species during the field research. However, their taxonomy and nomenclature have not yet been fully clarified, so a broader taxonomic concept in the form of the name L. carpinea agg. can be used. The real L. carpinea is probably a rare species in the Czech Republic and we don‘t know much about its distribution at this point. Apparently it prefers natural deciduous vegetation in mountain ranges and submontane regions. It grows on various broad-leaved trees. Data on its occurrence come mainly from the Šumava Mts.
