Stereocaulon saxatile H. Magn.

Stereocaulon saxatile is characterized by grey tomentum on the underside of pseudopodetia and flat to convex, squamulose to granulose phyllocladia. It grows on siliceous rocks and stones, also on soil, often at places with a long-lasting snow cover. It is a boreal lichen, rare in central Europe. In the Czech Republic, it was known in the Jizerské hory Mts and Krkonoše Mts (Černohorský et al. 1956). Recently, it also grows in the Krušné hory Mts and Lužické hory Mts.
