World survey of the genus Lepraria (Stereocaulaceae, lichenized Ascomycota)

  • Lauri SAAG (a1), Andres SAAG (a1) and Tiina RANDLANE (a1)

A comparative review of 57 Lepraria species and 2 varieties is provided together with species descriptions and a key. Lecanora leuckertiana is transferred to Lepraria. In addition some putative taxa by different authors are discussed.
