Montanelia panniformis (Nyl.) Divakar, A. Crespo, Wedin & Essl.

Montanelia panniformis is a predominantly mountain species, typically growing on acidic siliceous and igneous rocks. Most often it is found on steep sunny surfaces of rocks and stones, often in screes. In Europe, it is mainly a boreal lichen, more on the south occurring only in mountains. In the Czech Republic, it grows relatively sparsely, more common it is for example in Brdy. The species was described by A. Hilitzer from the Czech Republic (from Mt Plechý in the Šumava Mts and Mt Plešivec near Jince) under the name Parmelia crustificans (Hilitzer 1924).
