Lepraria maderensis Kukwa & Flakus, a new lichen species, is characterized by the production of atranorin (major), lecanoric (major), gyrophoric (minor), angardianic/roccellic (major) acids and an unidentified anthraquinone (minor), as well as a distinctly lobate thallus with large granules produced in the central part. It is only the second species of Lepraria containing gyrophoric acid as a constant diagnostic substance.
