Candelariella viae-lacteae G.Thor & V.Wirth. Stuttgarter Beitr. Naturk., A,445: 2. 1990.  

Holotype.

HUNGARY, Bács-Kiskun Prov.: Kecskemét area, Fülöphaza (20 km W of Kecskemét), alt. c. 150 m. 1987, G. Thor 7015 (S!, isotypes STU, VBI).

Candelariella viae-lacteae   is characterized by its grey thallus, uniformly composed of sphaerical granules ( Thor and Wirth 1990). Previous collections of this species from Switzerland have turned out to belong to other species, mostly Candelariella antennaria   , another species with a grey thallus. However, a recent find of Candelariella viae-lacteae   was made on mosses on a stem base of Fraxinus excelsior   .

Specimens examined.

Solothurn: Messen, alt. 500 m., 15 June 1998, Zimmermann   (herb. E. Zimmerman).
