Raphidicyrtis trichosporella new to Sweden.

Research output: Contribution to specialist publication or newspaperSpecialist publication article


Rhaphidicyrtis trichosporella (Nyl.) Vain. is reported here as new to Sweden from five sites in the southernmost part of the country, two in the province of Skåne and three in Småland. All sites are deciduous woodlands of different composition, but most likely with a long ecological continuity. Two records are from scaling bark of Alnus glutinosa in Alnus swamps, two from hard and smooth bark of Fagus sylvatica in shady and humid Fagus forests, and one from the shallow furrows of a young Quercus robur in a semi-open woodland dominated by Quercus and Tilia.
