Lepraria nylanderiana Kümmerl. & Leuckert

A species characterised by its prominent, white, well-delimited thallus. It occurs on vertical to overhanging, both intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks, usually in Ca-enriched places. Often, it may be seen on diabase. Outside the Czech Republic, the species has been reported also from trees in well-preserved forests. Lepraria nylanderiana is a rare termophilous lichen, known only from a limited number of localities in Europe. Less than thirty localities are known from the Czech Republic. They are concentrated mainly in xerothermic areas of central Bohemia, such as the Český kras karst and valleys of the rivers Vltava, Berounka and Sázava. In Moravia, the species is known only from the Podyjí National Park
