Cryptothecia eungellae G. Thor


Cryptothecia eungellae G. Thor View in CoL

This species was originally described by Thor (1997) from Australia. It is characterized by its firmly attached, shiny thallus which reacts C+ red and the chemistry, i.e. gyrophoric and norstictic acids, both as major substances in our material. Cryptothecia eungellae is a new addition to the Thai lichen biota and a new record for the Northern Hemisphere.
