Micarea nowakii Czarnota & Coppins

Quite a recently described lignicolous species. It usually grows on hard, slowly decaying, lying wood in dump environment, but may occur also at bases of snags, wooden planks and on stumps. In the Czech Republic, it has been reported from higher elevation of the Šumava Mts, Krkonoše Mts, Jizerské hory Mts, Kralický Snežník Mts and Jeseníky Mts. Its typical habitats are large logs in open mountain spruce forests, in raised bogs and boggy forests. The lichen is usually found in pycnidial stage without fruiting bodies. Its confusion with the common M. denigrata is possible, therefore its real distribution may be broader.
