New Crustose Species for Ohio

An excellent new book by James Lendemer, Richard Harris and Erin Trip (The Lichens and Allied Fungi of Great Smokey Mountains National Park, 2013. The New York Botanical Garden Press) is an annotated checklist with comprehensive keys. The book also describes a number of species new to science. Among these are two new species with specimens from Ohio: Arthonia susa, Adams Co., and Lecanora appalachensis, Scioto Co. Both of these new species were collected during the joint Crum – Tuckerman Workshop in 2006.
