Synopsis top ↑

This study presents a monograph of saxicolous lecideoid lichens occurring in continental Australia (Fuscidea, Protoblastenia, and Trapelia are excluded for several reasons). Sixty-four species belonging to eight families and twenty-two genera have been revised. Twenty-two of the taxa previously reported from continental Australia (FILSON 1988a) have been retained, thirteen with unchanged status.
A key and descriptions of the anatomical, morphological and chemical features are given for all species dealt with in this study. Taxonomic affinities, ecological behaviour and infraspecific variation are discussed. The distribution of each species within continental Australia is mapped.

Inhaltsbeschreibung top ↑

Vorliegende Arbeit stellt eine Monographie saxicoler lecideoider Flechtengattungen des australischen Kontinents (excl. Tasmaniens) dar (Fuscidea, Protoblastenia und Trapelia wurden aus verschiedenen Gründen ausgeschlossen). 64 Arten aus acht Familien und 22 Gattungen wurden revidiert. Von den bislang für Australien gemeldeten Taxa (FILSON 1988a) werden 22 beibehalten, 13 mit unverändertem Status.
Ein Bestimmungsschlüssel zur Identifizierung der behandelten Arten sowie Beschreibungen der anatomischen, morphologischen und chemischen Merkmale aller behandelten Sippen werden gegeben. Die Verwandtschaftsverhältnisse, das ökologische Verhalten und die Variabilität der verschiedenen Taxa werden diskutiert. Die kontinental-australischen Verbreitungsareale der Arten sind auf Karten dargestellt.
