Agonimia pacifica (Harada) Diederich

Harada (1993) described this species and placed it in a new genus Agonimiella . Diederich however convincingly showed that the differences between the new genus and Agonimia are more minor than thought by Harada ( Aptroot et al. 1997). Consequently he transferred the species to the genus Agonimia . Our own observations confirmed those of Diederich. Previously, Agonimia pacifica was known from Brazil, Costa Rica, Japan, Reunion and Taiwan ( Aptroot 2002, Aptroot et al. 2008, v.d. Boom et al. 2011). This report is a new addition to the Chinese lichen biota.
