Lecidea speirodes Nyl.

A calciphilous lichen usually growing on Ca-enriched siliceous rocks in high mountains. The information about its occurrence in the Czech Republic has not been published yet, but the species was only listed in a research report. It has formerly been recorded only in the alpine zone of central and western Europe (Hertel 2006). Its presence in the Czech Republic requires verification.
