Abstract

Eight species of Buellia s.l. containing xanthones are newly reported from China, including two species new to science (Buellia endoflavida and B. microareolata) and six records (B. concinna, B. mamillana, Stigmatochroma gerontoides, Tetramelas chloroleucus, T. geophilus and T. insignis) new to China. The genera Stigmatochroma and Tetramelas are also newly recorded from China. These species share the yellowish thallus with a UV+ yellow to orange reaction and can thus be easily separated from other buellioid taxa. Morphological, chemical and phylogenetic analyses were carried out to elucidate the placement of these species and to support the delimitation of the new taxa. Detailed descriptions and figures for the two new species are given and a key to all xanthone-containing buellioid species from China is provided.
