Abstract

Taxonomic studies on lichen genus Pilophorus in China revealed a hitherto unknown species to science, which is here described as new: Pilophorus yunnanensis L. S. Wang & X. Y. Wang. It is characterized by small, simple, unbranched pseudopodetia having numerous scales, single (rarely two) globose apothecia at the tip and the lack of a columella. The species is reported from high elevations in Yunnan Province in southwestern China and was collected from siliceous rocks exposed to sun. Description and figures are provided on the basis of this material and the new taxon is compared with other Pilophorus species.
