Candelariella efflorescens R.C.Harris & W.R.Buck. Michigan Bot. 17: 155. 1978.  

Holotype.

U.S.A. Michigan: Mackinac Co.: Edge of swamp across highway from Island Point State Forest campground (Hog Island State Forest Campground). 5 Oct 1974, W. R. Buck (MICH, isotype H!).

We can here confirm the presence of Candelariella efflorescens   (Fig. 4) in Switzerland by reporting six fertile specimens with c. 30-spored asci. They were collected mainly in the montane belt on deciduous and coniferous trees, mostly close to the ground. The three specimens collected in the framework of the Red List project were identified as Candelariella xanthostigma   . As most of the specimens of the small, sorediate Candelariella   species are sterile, it is usually not possible to separate between Candelariella efflorescens   and Candelariella xanthostigmoides   (see under this species) and sterile specimens are referred by us to Candelariella efflorescens   agg.
