Ramalina pollinaria (Westr.) Ach.

A species very similar to R. europaea, but distinguished by finer soredia, formed marginally or laminarly, never on narrow pointed lobules. In the past, R. europaea, which is much more common than R. pollinaria s. str., used to be recorded under this name. It is epiphytic on deciduous trees. Its ecology and distribution are little known. It seems to be rare in both Europe and the Czech Republic. Morphological identification is not easy, given the variability of both taxa. In uncertain cases, confirmation using molecular methods is useful.
