Puttea exsequens (Nyl.) Printzen & Davydov

A species associated with boreal forests, growing on hard and slowly decaying wood, often near watercourses. Its status in the Czech Republic is unresolved for now. Historically, it used to be published as Lecidea/Biatora gibberosa but the specimens require revisions. Two of them, published from the Krkonoše Mts (Kuťák 1952), actually represent the recently described Lecidea coriacea (Holien et al. 2016).
