The morphology, anatomy, ecology and distribution of Buellia tesserata and Dimelaena radiata are discussed. New data on their chemistry are given. The present study reveals a very close relationship between both taxa and consequently their different generic position is questioned. Buellia fimbriata is reduced to synonymy with Buellia tesserata.
