Rinodina freyi H. Magn.

A minute Rinodina with a brown-grey thallus, often composed of only a few areoles. It has Physcia-type spores with thickened cell walls near the septum and in the apices. It is an epiphytic species, commonly found on twigs of various trees in nitrophilous lichen communities. However, it might also occur on wood. It used to be misidentified as R. septentrionalis in the past, and under that name it was also first published from the Czech Republic (Palice 1999). Rinodina freyi is found scattered from the lowlands to the mountain areas in the southern part of the Czech Republic. It is, at least partly, overlooked.
