Rinodina turfacea (Wahlenb.) Körb.

Rinodina with brown thallus and large lecanorine apothecia (up to 1.8 mm in diameter). It has large (20–34 × 9–14 µm) Physcia type spores (thickened cell wall near the septum and in the apices). It is mostly terricolous on acidic substrates, but also occurs on wood, plant debris, humus and peat. In Europe, it is locally abundant in arctic regions and above the tree line in the mountains. Rarely, it is also found in openings in boreal montane forests. There is a single vague record from the area of the Czech Republic from the 19th century. Opiz (1856) states on page 155: “probably from the Krkonoše Mts (the herbarium of Günther [Medizinalassessor Günther zu Breslau (+1833)])”. It is currently not known here, but might occur in the Krkonoše Mts.
