Rinodina chrysidiata, a new species from far eastern Asia and the Appalachian Mountains of North America

  • James C. LENDEMER (a1), John W. SHEARD (a2), Göran THOR (a3) and Tor TØNSBERG (a4)

A new isidiate, xanthone-producing species, Rinodina chrysidiata, is described and compared in detail with R. xanthophaea, a species with which it co-occurs in eastern Asia. The two species have an identical chemistry but are clearly separated by their differing lichenized diaspores, thallus morphology and ascospore type.
