Micarea microsorediata van den Boom, Guzow-Krzemińska, Sérusiaux & M. Kukwa

A lichen from the M. micrococca agg., similar to the sorediate M. viridileprosa from which it differs in the content of methoxymicareic acid. The species has been described relatively recently and has been reported only from a few European countries. However, it is apparently relatively common in some regions (Guzow-Krzemińska et al. 2019). Most often it is found on acidic bark in rather moist forests, but it grows also on wood and terricolous bryophytes. In the Czech Republic, it has been found on birch wood and bark in the Křivoklát region (Týřov and Prameny Klíčavy).
