Ramalina elegans (Lichenes, Ramalinaceae) a taxon which has been mistaken for Ramalina calicaris and R. fastigiata in the Iberian Peninsula



Ramalina elegans (Lichenes, Ramalinaceae) a taxon which has been mistaken for Ramalina calicaris and R. fastigiata in the Iberian Peninsula



Cryptogamic Botany 5(1): 22-27



Ramalina elegans, R. calicaris and R. fastigiata from the Iberian Peninsula have often been misidentified. Ramalina fastigiata always contains the evernic acid complex while R. elegans and R. calicaris contain the sekikaic acid complex. Ramalina elegans has relatively high concentrations of both sekikaic and homosekikaic acids in similar proportions, while R. calicaris contains homosekikaic acid as a trace substance only.
