Abstract english

A preliminary phylogeny of the genera Flavopunctelia and Punctelia is presented. Genus and species delimitations

have been investigated using ITS rDNA-sequencing of populations from different continents. Current genus delimitations of

Flavopunctelia, Punctelia and Parmelia are confirmed and the species status of recently resurrected Punctelia ulophylla is confirmed.

The status of three cryptic species, Flavopunctelia soredica, Punctelia perreticulata and P. stictica is discussed. Flavopunctelia borrerioides

and Punctelia perreticulata are reported from China for the first time.
