Abstract english

Candelaria pacifica is formally described. It is currently

known from North and South America and Europe. The species is

characterized by a small, lobate thallus with soredia formed on the

lobe tips and along the margins. It has been confused with C. concolor

in Europe and North America, but differs in having 8-spored asci and

in lacking a lower cortex. Candelaria vulgaris, the type species of the

genus is confirmed to be a synonym to C. concolor.
