Caloplaca erecta, a new subfruticose species from New Zealand

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Caloplaca erecta Arup & H. Mayrhofer is described here as new to science. It belongs to a group of dwarf-fruticose species, but cannot be accommodated within any of the known species of that group. It forms dense cushions of erect lobes on siliceous rocks, and is known only from Mt. Maungatua. This is the second dwarf-fruticose species of Caloplaca in the Australasian area, in addition to C. cribosa. (C) 2000 The British Lichen Society.
