Lobothallia melanaspis (Ach.) Hafellner

Lobothallia melanaspis is a saxicolous species which grows on sun-lit siliceous stones around mountain streams and lakes, typically in their splash zone. Generally, it is a boreal-mountain lichen rare in central Europe. Multiple localities are known only from the Alps and Tatra Mountains. There are only two historical reports from the Czech Republic, both from the beginning of the 20th century, that possibly refers to the taxon. In particular, it has been reported from two microlocalities in the Třebíč region (Picbauer 1911) and from the Křemelná River in the Šumava Mts (Hilitzer 1929). The two other records, mentioned in the Catalogue of Lichens of the Czech Republic (Vězda & Liška 1999), most probably do not correspond to this taxon or were not made in the country.
