Abstract
The terricolous lichen Peltigera chionophila sp. nov. is described from the western cordillera of North America. It can be distinguished from other members of the P. aphthosa group by its even lobe margins, its uniformly corticate apothecial reverses, its well-defined veins that darken gradually toward the thallus centre, and by its strict occurrence in mountainous regions subject to heavy, prolonged snow cover. Comparisons of sequences of the Internal Transcriber Spacer of the nuclear ribosomal DNA repeat support the taxonomic distinctness of this species. A map of its global distribution is provided.
