Abstract

A new species of lichenized ascomycete in the genus Bactrospora is described from the Pacific Northwest of North America, bringing to two the total number of Bactrospora species known from this region. Bactrospora cascadensis is so far known only from the snowy high-elevation forests in the Cascades of Washington State. This species is characterized by a pinkish to yellowish thallus, spores intact within the ascus but usually fragmenting into short chains outside the ascus, and an exciple and hypothecium that are K/IKI blue.
