Lecidella laureri (Hepp) Körb.

This little-known taxon from the L. elaeochroma group is characterized by xanthoneless thallus and convex pruinose fruiting bodies with vanishing margins. It has been reported mainly from the Alps, from wood and eutrophicated bark (Poelt & Vězda 1981). Currently, this taxon is recognized only by some authors (e.g. Nimis et al. 2018), otherwise it is usually referred to as L. elaeochroma. However, this problematic group requires further study.
