Abstract

A comparison of Buellia turgescens Nyl. ex Tuck. with B. badia (Fr.) A. Massal. demonstrates that the two taxa are identical. Both have very similar thalli, identical apothecial anatomy, identical size and structure of the ascospores, and bacilliform conidia. Consequently, B. turgescens should not be included in the genus Amandinea, which was erected to accommodate species of Buellia s.l. and Rinodina s.l. with filiform conidia. Thalli of B. badia show juvenile parasitism on foliose and crustose lichens, but with age become independent. The distribution of B. badia is shown in southwestern North America.
