• Caloplaca cerinelloides (Erichsen) Poeltnom. inval.

There are no records for this species at present.

This species is identical to C. cerinella (described elsewhere) but differs in having eight spores per ascus (not 1216). It is often drawn to dust-impacted bark, especially trees close to limestone quarry workings. In Ireland, the species is known only from County Fermanagh.

  • Virtually identical to C. cerinella (on twigs of basic-barked, short-lived trees)
  • Spores 8/ascus.
