Scytinium biatorinum (Nyl.) Otálora, P.M. Jørg. & Wedin

An inconspicuous Scytinium species with a variable minute granular to squamulose thallus. Most commonly, it is an early colonizer of disturbed exposed calcareous soil, but may also occur on walls, calcareous rocks and stones. It is a little known, scarcely recorded and probably also a rare lichen. There are only five published records from the Czech Republic – three from the surroundings of Brno, one from the Mladá Boleslav region and one from the Týnčanský kras karst (Czeika et al. 2004, Guttová 2006, Malíček 2013).
