Stereocaulon condensatum Hoffm.

Stereocaulon condensatum has a persistent primary thallus, which forms crusts on exposed sandy soil, e. g., in heathlands and relict pine forests. It is an early colonizer and can also be found on anthropogenic stands with slow succession, for example created by ore mining. Currently, it is a rare species, only found in the Krušné hory Mts, Slavkovský les Highlands and Kokořín region. Historical records are abundant (see the Catalogue by Vězda & Liška 1999).
