Some Observations on The Thallus in Pannaria, with Description of a New Species

  • T. D. V. Swinscow (a1) and Hildur Krog (a2)

Pannaria is shown to include species whose thallus ranges from the almost homoiomerous to the fully differentiated heteromerous state. A new species of Pannaria is described, P. santessonii, with a thallus closely resembling that characteristic of the Collemataceae. Lepidocollema carassense Vainio and Lepidoleptogium montaguei A. L. Sm., the type species of these respective genera, have beenfound to have a similar type of thallus. Further study of the relationship between thesegenera is needed.
