Phaeophyscia ciliata (Hoffm.) Moberg

A sexually reproducing Phaeophyscia species. Its name refers to the fact that the underside of its apothecia is densely covered with rhizines. It prefers subnetural bark of deciduous trees. Its distribution area covers the temperate zone of Northern Hemisphere. In central Europe, it is scattered to rare, mainly in montane valleys. There are historical records from various places in the Czech Republic (e.g., Nádvorník 1947), but recently it has only been found at three localities in the Šumava Mts.
