Micarea soralifera Guzow-Krzemińska, Czarnota, Łubek & Kukwa

A recently described sorediate member of the M. prasina agg. that forms blueish-green delimited soralia. It is a characteristic forest species, occurring especially in old-growth forests with sufficient supply of wood, but its presence in moist managed forests is not an exception. Its preferred substrate is decaying lying wood of deciduous and coniferous trees, eventually bases of snags and stumps. In suitable habitats, it grows also epiphytically – usually at tree bases and root swellings. It is one of the relatively abundant but infrequently identified species in the Czech Republic. This is mainly due to its confusability with other sorediate lichens, such as members of the genus Trapeliopsis or other Micarea species.
