Melanohalea exasperatula (Nyl.) O. Blanco & al.

A common epiphytic lichen characteristic by the presence of flattened (shovel-shaped) isidia. It occurs in most of Europe. The species has a wide ecological amplitude and is relatively tolerant to eutrophication. It grows on deciduous and coniferous trees at any elevation, both in forests and open landscape. Particularly common it is on thin twigs. Exceptionally, it may occur also on wood and rocks. The species is common in most of the Czech Republic.
