Abstract english

Two new species of Caloplaca are described, C. pseudocitrina (in the C. citrina group), which is characterized by rather long spores with a thin septum, and a squamulose thallus and C. akbarica (C. saxicola-group) characterized by rather thick, brightly yellowish pruinose apothecia and a paraplectenchymatous proper exciple. The characters of the new species and their closely allied taxa are compared in tables and illustrated.
