Brigantiaea phaeomma (Nyl.) Hafellner

Previously, Brigantiaea phaeomma was known only from the Southern Hemisphere, including Argentina, Australia and New Zealand (Hafellner 1997). It is characterized by apothecia covered by a rust-brown granular pruina which reacts KOH+ purple, 1-spored asci and in being muscicolous rather than corticolous. This report is a new addition to the Chinese lichen biota.
