Micarea polycarpella (Erichsen) Coppins & Palice

A subcosmopolite pioneer lichen growing on small acidic stones or lying hard wood impregnated by mineral particles. Most often, it is found at localities of anthropogenic character (wasted pots, sand pits, railways, road margins). Naturally, it occurs, for example, on stones in watercourse alluvia. The species is widespread in the Czech Republic, but it was reported sporadically in the last two decades. Literatura: Palice Z.
