Squamarina gypsacea (Sm.) Poelt

Squamarina gypsacea grows most commonly in crevices in the horizontal surfaces of calcareous rocks. Its distribution is sub-Mediterranean in Europe. In central Europe, it is more common only at higher elevations in the Alps; otherwise, it is rare. There are no recent records from the Czech Republic. Historically, it was recorded at Hradčanské stěny rocks in the Česká Lípa region (Anders 1936), Kunětická hora hill (Kalenský 1906) and from the surroundings of Kostelec na Hané (Kovář 1911). These collections, however, require a revision.
