Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

Three species of Caloplaca are described as new to
science: Caloplaca caesiosorediata Arup & van den Boom, a
corticolous species and two saxicolous species, Caloplaca
catillarioides Arup & van den Boom, and C. caesioisidiata Arup &
van den Boom, all from the archipelago of Cape Verde. They are
dark-fruited and have a pale to dark greyish crustose thallus. None of
the new species are phylogentically related to the Pyrenodesmia
group, but closely related to each other.
