  • Bajpai, R./ Joseph, S./ Upreti, D.K. 2017: Additional distributional records of the lichen genus Cryptothecia in India. - Cryptogam Biodiversity and Assessment 2(2): 41-47. [RLL List # 252 / Rec.# 39904]
    Abstract: Additional distribution of 25 species of the genus Cryptothecia from different states of India has been provided. Earlier these species were known from limited localities, and currently, they are recorded from the almost all parts of India which is discussed in the present paper. The present study is based on observation of a large number of specimens annotated as ‘sterile specimen’ and other voucher specimens preserved at CSIR-National Botanical Research Institute herbarium (LWG).

    Abstract: The species, Bactrospora lamprospora (Nyl.) Lendemer is treated as a synonym of B. metabola (Nyl.) Egea & Torrente. The comparission of characters of all accessible materials and type specimens confirmed that B. lamprospora is conspecific with B. metabola. The distinguishing characters of B. metabola from other species in this group are initially a Homalotropa-type ascospores becomes muriform at maturity, with up to 24–30 transverse septa and ascospore size of 48–105 × 7–14 μm.

AWAS, H-NYL, L, LWG, LWU, M, PBL, S, TUR and W, additional live collections and relevant literature. All the earlier erroneously identified herbarium collections were identified correctly based on the critical studies, and the specimens that required further evaluation were studied by obtaining these on loan. Information and images available in the databases of various national and international herbaria and associated libraries were critically studied.

    Keywords: Arthoniales/ India/ lichen/ new species/ taxonomy/ Arthoniaceae/ Arthoniales/ Ascomycota
    Abstract: The type specimens of Synarthonia bicolor and S. stigmatidialis were examined, leading the authors to revise their descriptions as well as the generic description. Also, two new species of Synarthonia, viz. S. psoromica and S. sikkimensis are described from India. Synarthonia psoromica, collected from the Nilgiri Hills of Tamil Nadu, is characterized by immersed synascomata and the presence of psoromic acid. Synarthonia sikkimensis, collected from Sikkim-Himalaya, is characterized by the sorediate thallus with a rhizomorph-like prothallus. These distinguishing characters are observed for the first time in Synarthonia. After considering the protologue of the recently described S. sarcographoides, a comprehensive account of this genus is made. In addition, a world key to all known species of Synarthonia is provided. © 2015 British Lichen Society.

    Abstract: In our continuous effort to explore the lichens in new and interesting areas FEEDS campus and SBG garden located in Manipur, a north-eastern state of India are surveyed. The study resulted in 47 species in FEEDS campus and 80 species in SB garden respectively, while both areas shared 22 species in common. The crustose lichens were more dominant in the area represented by Graphidaceae (16 spp.) and Pyrenulaceae (15 spp.). The species composition in both the sites represented photophilic communities such as graphidaceous, physcioid and parmelioid lichens. FEEDS campus had open areas with cultivated plants where as SBG garden had semi-evergreen forest at its initial stage of succession. The study also added 55 lichen species as new distributional records to Manipur.

    Abstract: The present communication includes a list of 411 species of lichens under 147 genera reported or described from India after the publication of “Indian Lichens: An Annotated Checklist” by Singh and Sinha (2010). According to latest issue of Plant Discoveries 2016 (Singh and Dash, 2017) 2511 species of lichens are known from India. However, a thorough collation including less popular and online journals where taxonomic novelties in the form of new records are not mentioned, revealed significant increase during the past seven years. By addition of 411 species to the list of Singh and Sinha (2010), now the total number of lichens for India raises up to 2714 species. However, due to nomenclature changes and synonymy, revisions, etc. this data may change. Few species which were not included in Singh and Sinha (2010) are also included in this list. Species simply transferred to other genera without affecting the number tally are not listed here. Like-wise obligate lichenicolous and non-lichenized fungi are not included in the present list. The current list indicates that large number of taxa are reported from the family Graphidaceae (106 spp.) where genus Graphis alone counts 34 species. Large number of taxa are also reported from order Arthoniales (52 species) with Opegrapha representing 17 species. The species listed here follows the pattern of; species name (in bold), reference, and name of the state from where the species is reported. For the references cited in this paper readers may refer ‘Bibliography to the Indian lichens from the year 2010 onwards’ by Joseph et. al. (2018) published in the same issue of this journal.

    Abstract: Epiphytic lichen biota occuring on Areca palm (Areca catechy L.) trees have been investigated from the cultivated areas, with dense human habitation, in the Pathanamthitta district of Kerala. A total of 19 lichen species belonging to nine genera and six families were enumerated from the Areca trees of the area. The foliose forms represented by 17 species were dominant, followed by two species of crustose lichens. Fruticose forms were not found in this area. The family Calidiaceae was dominant with eight species followed by Physciaceae with five species. The families Collemataceae and Parmeliaceae were represented by two species each, and Arthoniaceae and Pyrenulaceae were represented by single species each.

    Abstract: Abstract:The present paper deals with new records of lichen species from the state of Kerala, India. The study was conducted as part of the exploration of lichen mycota from the croplands and forests of Pathanamthitta district in Kerala. Field study and collection of specimens were conducted during the period 2017-2019. Specimens were identified using standard procedures, keys and literature followed by preservation and deposition in the recognized herbaria of the country (LWG and RHK). Eleven species of lichens, Cladonia praetermissa A.W. Archer, Collema japonicum (Müll. Arg.) Hue, Heterodermia hypochraea (Vain.) Swinscow & Krog, Leptogium coralloideum (Meyen & Flot.) Vain., Pannaria emodii P.M. Jørg., Phyllopsora chlorophaea (Müll. Arg.) Zahlbr., Phyllopsora parvifolia var. subgranulosa (Tuck.) Müll. Arg., Physcia dilatata Nyl., Physcia dubia (Hoffm.) Lettau, Physcia sorediosa (Vain.) Lynge, and Pseudocyphellaria clathrata (De Not.) Malme are being reported for the first time from Kerala. These are enumerated along with their present distribution. This study further enriches the lichen diversity of the state.
