Peltigera neopolydactyla (Gyeln.) Gyeln.

A robust lichen, typical by its wide, grey to bluish, smooth lobes and long rhizines. It prefers mossy boulders and bases of old trees in mountain and boreal regions. In central Europe, except in the Alps, the species is rare, as well as in the Czech Republic, where only individual records are known from the Šumava, Hrubý Jeseník, Krušné hory and Novohradské hory Mts. In the past, the P. neopolydactyla was not distinguished from similar members of the group around P. polydactylon.
