Tassiloa, a new genus in the Teloschistaceae (lichenized ascomycetes)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The new genus Tassiloa, proposed for the American Caloplaca digitaurea-group, is supported by
phylogenetic analyses based on ITS and LSU nrDNA-sequences, and 12S SSU mtDNA-sequences. The
genus is positioned in the Catenarina-clade in the subfamily Teloschistoideae of the family Teloschistaceae.
The genus Tassiloa is described and compared with closely related genera. Two new combinations are
proposed, Tassiloa digitaurea and T. wetmorei.
