Notes on the Genus Arthopyrenia in the British Isles

  • B. J. Coppins (a1)

The genus Arthopyrenia is redefined to include only corticolous lichenized or non-lichenized fungi. A key and notes are provided for the 14 species accepted for the British Isles, including three new species, A. carneobrunneola, A. ranunculospora and A. viridescens. Arthopyrenia nilescens is resurrected from synonymy, A. cinereopruinosa is confirmed as occurring in the British Isles, and A. fraxini, A. salicis and A. subcerasi are added to the British list. The following names are lectotypined: Arthopyrenia fraxini Massal. (including f. orbicularis Massal. and f. rufidula Massal.), A. salicis Massal., Verrucaria nitescens Salwey and V. subcerasi Vainio.
