Micarea pycnidiophora Coppins & P. James

A rare and possibly also partly overlooked suboceanic lichen. It grows epiphytically (beech, sycamore, spruce) on permanently humid microhabitats in ravines around upper streams. In the Czech Republic, the species has been recorded only in the pycnidial stage without apothecia in the České Švýcarsko National Park and western part of the Šumava Mts.
