Abstract english

Förra sommaren gästades SLF den 13–17 juni av den brittiska motsvarigheten BLS genom en inbjudan av Lars Borg, som ibland gästat deras exkursioner i England. Vi var förlagda till Allégården i Kastlösa på Öland varifrån vi gjorde utflykter till olika
delar av södra och mellersta Öland. En halvdag ägnades också åt en typiskt sur tallskog på fastlandet i närheten av Kalmar. Här berättar Ulf om den historiska exkursionen som var den första i sitt slag för SLF.
Brigantiaea crystallina Arup is described as new to science from South Korea and Japan. It is similar to B. purpurata but has a pale to pale brownish orange hypothecium, an excipulum penetrated by brownish orange anthraquinone
crystals as well as colourless crystals that appear white in polarised light, the spores are smaller and the thallus lacks zeorine. The new species is illustrated and compared with similar species. A key to all Brigantiaea species of the world is also presented.
