Myriolecis agardhiana (Ach.) Śliwa, Zhao Xin & Lumbsch

An inconspicuous saxicolous lichen with a noticeable preference for limestone. It occurs from lowlands to the mountains. In Europe, the species is more common in regions rich in limestones or dolomites, such as in Mediterranean and the Alps. It occurs rarely in the Czech Republic. So far, it has been found only in a few localities in the Český kras and Moravský kras (Czech and Moravian Karsts). It may be partially overlooked or mistaken for members of the genus Pyrenodesmia (syn. Caloplaca sect. Pyrenodesmia) with immersed fruiting bodies.
