Abstract
Lepraria toensbergiana Bayerová & Kukwa, a new lichen species from Europe is described. It is similar in morphology and ITS sequence to the widespread L. jackii Tønsberg, but different in chemistry. It contains atranorin and toensbergianic acid as major secondary metabolites. The distribution of the taxon is rather well defined, being found especially in mountain areas. A key to Lepraria species in Europe containing only fatty acids and atranorin is provided.
