Placynthium tremniacum (A. Massal.) Jatta

Little known species, closely related, maybe even conspecific, with the most common P. nigrum, from which it differs in a pruinose thallus, less developed prothallus and mostly 1-septate spores (Nimis et al. 2018). Czeika & Czeika (2007) synonymized the two species and noted that the type material of P. tremniacum contains both 3-septate and 1-septate spores. The identity of the Czech specimens (see literature) requires further studies.
