Aspicilia Crespiana, a new Lichen Species from Southern Europe

  • Victor J. Rico (a1)

Aspicilia crespiana Rico is described as a new species from central Spain and Sardinia (Italy). In central Spain it is common and has a well-defined ecology. It is found at middle to high altitudes (from 400 to 1900 m), overgrowing mosses on exposed and horizontal to more or less vertical siliceous rocks. Closely related to the A. contorta (Hoffm.) Kremp. complex, A. crespiana differs in its muscicolous habit and thallus development, consisting of a network of lichenized squamules interlinked by fungal rhizomorphs.
