Abstract

Fellhanera crucitignorum, a blastidiate crustose lichen with anthraquinones and submuriform ascospores, is described as new to science. The species is associated with exposures of non-calcareous sandstones in Kansas and Oklahoma, in the southern portion of North America's Great Plains. The authraquinones are typically concentrated in the blastidia, creating a distinctive grey thallus with localized orange granules.
