Peccania coralloides (A. Massal.) A. Massal.

The thallus of this cyanolichen is composed of black, often pruinose beady cushions. The species grows on natural calcareous (mainly limestone) rocks, especially vertical seepage ones. Peccania coralloides is rare in central Europe, more common mainly in the Mediterranean. In the Czech Republic, it has been recorded in the Český kras (Bohemian Karst) and in southern Moravia, in the valley of the Rokytná river and the Pálava Hills. Furthermore, there are unverified data from the Podyjí National Park.
