Abstract

Arthonia anglica Coppins, A. anombrophila Coppins & P. James (syn. A. cinereopruinosa auct. brit.) and A. ligniariella Coppins are newly described, and Arthothelium ilicinum var. dictyosporum is given specific rank. British material of ‘Arthonia exilis’ is shown to be Bryostigma leucodontis Poelt & Döbb., which is transferred to Arthonia. Arthonia granitophila Th. Fr. (syn. Melaspilea subarenacea J. Nowak & Kiszka) is transferred to Melaspilea. Arthonia ligniaria Hellb. is added to the British list. Arthonia astroidestra Nyl. is lectotypified and shown not to be conspecific with A. stellaris Krempelh., while A. excipienda Nyl. (syn. A. hibernica Nyl.) is found not to be a synonym of A. dispersa (Schrader) Nyl. Catillaria ooliticola W. Watson is made a synonym of A. lapidicola (Taylor) Branth & Rostrup; Arthonia punctilliformis Leighton is excluded from that genus; and A. dispersa and A. patellulata Nyl. are excluded from the British list. In addition, four new lichenicolous species on corticolous hosts are introduced: Arthonia cohabitans Coppins, A. graphidicola Coppins, A. invadens Coppins and A. thelotrematis Coppins.
