For the purposes of this atlas, this aggregate includes taxa M. fallax, M. flavoleprosa, M. herbarum, M. melanobola, M. meridionalis, M. nowakii, M. prasina and M. soralifera. Except for M. herbarum, they all produces micareic acid. It is one of the taxonomically most challenging groups of central European lichens. Moreover, some of them have not been officially described yet. Molecular methods are often needed for a reliable species identification.
