Lepraria granulata Slav.-Bay.

A rare member of the L. neglecta group, in the field practically undistinguishable from L. borealis. Lepraria granulata grows over moss cushions on siliceous rocks. Besides, its occurrence on acidic soil is occasionally reported. According to the hitherto known data, L. granulata is the typical alpine species. In Europe, it is one of the rarest genus members, being recorded especially in central European countries. In the Czech Republic, the lichen has been reported from a single locality so far – from the Velká kotelní jáma glacial cirque in the Krkonoše Mts.
