Abstract english

Three species of Caloplaca are described as new to

science: Caloplaca caesiosorediata Arup & van den Boom, a

corticolous species and two saxicolous species, Caloplaca

catillarioides Arup & van den Boom, and C. caesioisidiata Arup &

van den Boom, all from the archipelago of Cape Verde. They are

dark-fruited and have a pale to dark greyish crustose thallus. None of

the new species are phylogentically related to the Pyrenodesmia

group, but closely related to each other.
