Buellia nordinii, a new triseptate species from Venezuela

  • Mireia GIRALT (a1), Klaus KALB (a2) and John A. ELIX (a3)


Buellia nordinii, a new muscicolous or lignicolous species characterized by a blastidiate thallus containing atranorin, apothecia with a fine granular surface, markedly enlarged paraphyses tips and large triseptate ascospores is described from Venezuela. The species grows in very humid situations near the ground in open paramo vegetation at high elevations. It is compared with other known asexually reproducing and triseptate Buellia taxa.
