Abstract english

The new genus Tassiloa, proposed for the American Caloplaca digitaurea-group, is supported by

phylogenetic analyses based on ITS and LSU nrDNA-sequences, and 12S SSU mtDNA-sequences. The

genus is positioned in the Catenarina-clade in the subfamily Teloschistoideae of the family Teloschistaceae.

The genus Tassiloa is described and compared with closely related genera. Two new combinations are

proposed, Tassiloa digitaurea and T. wetmorei.
