Lecanora cinereofusca H. Magn.

A species usually found in natural deciduous forests with rich in precipitation. It mostly occurs in primeval beech forests, mainly on Fagus sp., Acer pseudoplatanus and Alba alba. In Europe, it is considered as a rare lichen known from the Alps, the Carpathians, the Caucasus, Scandinavia and Scotland. There is only one historical record from the Czech Republic (1904) from the old-growth forest on the mountain Žákova hora in the Žďárské vrchy Hills. Recently, this species has not been confirmed here and is therefore considered extinct.
