Brownlielloideae, a new subfamily in the Teloschistaceae (Lecanoromycetes, Ascomycotina)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Brownlielloideae, a new subfamily in the Teloschistaceae, is proposed based on phylogenetic
analyses of nuclear ribosomal DNA and 12S SSU mitochondrial DNA sequences. The
data indicates that the new subfamily includes eight genera, i.e. Brownliella, Marchantiana
and six new genera proposed here, Lazarenkoella, Raesaeneniana, Streimanniella, Tarasginia,
Tayloriella and Thelliana. Lecanora kobeana Nyl. is lectotypified and shown to be an older
name for the type species of the genus Brownliella, B. aequata. In addition, a seventh new
genus, Neobrownliella is proposed in the subfamily Teloschistoideae. This new genus and
the new species, Thelliana pseudokiamae are described. 13 new combinations are proposed:
Brownliella kobeana, Fulgogasparrea appressa, Lazarenkoella zoroasteriorum, Neobrownliella
brownlieae, N. montisfracti, Raesaeneniana maulensis, Streimanniella burneyensis, S. kalbiorum,
S. michelagoensis, S. seppeltii, Tarasginia tomareeana, T. whinrayi and Tayloriella erythrosticta.
