Thelidium robustum. Line drawing by P.M. McCarthy.

Today, the State Herbarium of South Australia published one paper in the online version of the Journal of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.

P.M. McCarthy & G. Kantvilas, Thelidium robustum sp. nov. (lichenized Ascomycota, Verrucariaceae) from Kangaroo Island, South Australia (430KB PDF).

Patrick McCarthy (formerly Australian Biological Resources Study, Canberra) and Gintaras Kantvilas (Tasmanian Herbarium, Hobart) describe a new species of lichen from Kangaroo Island. It is only known from one locality on the island, growing on limestone amongst dense coastal heathland. The authors also provide an identification key to all species of Thelidium in Australia.
