A new gall-inducing and lirellate lichenicolous fungus, Plectocarpon diedertzianum Y. Joshi, Upadhyay et Chandra, is described from Kumaun Himalayan regions of India colonising thallus of various parmelioid lichens (Flavoparmelia caperata, Myelochroa aurulenta, Parmotrema crinitum, P. melanothrix, P. reticulatum, Punctelia subrudecta). The new species is characterised by black, epruinose rounded to lirellate ascomata with a carbonised surface and a ±thalline pseudomargin, as well as a carbonised, sterile stromatic tissue, 4-spored asci and 3-septate hyaline ascospores.
We present the results of lichenological survey in the area of Zemplínske vrchy Mts in this paper. The study area is underexplored regarding lichens and there are not many published resources on lichens. In total thirty-five localities were investigated and 68 lichen species were identified. Fifteen species of them are evaluated in the Red list of lichens of Slovakia. From interesting findings, Cladonia crispata, Graphis scripta, Lecanora conizaeoides and Flavoparmelia caperata are discussed here. Physcia leptalea is reported for the first time for the area of Slovakia.
