Synopsis top ↑

A revision of the genera Rinodina (Ach.) Gray and Rinodinella H. Mayrhofer & Poelt (lichenized Ascomycetes, Physciaceae) in the Iberian Peninsula is compiled. "Buellia” parvula, a species of uncertain taxonomic position, seventy-six Rinodina and two Rinodinella taxa are treated in detail. General information on the most important characters of the species, with a special focus on ascospore-types, ascospore-ontogenies and secondary lichen metabolites, is included. A key to the species is also provided. All the species are described in detail, their habitat and distribution in the study area are discussed and their ascospores are illustrated. Furthermore, for each species, the recently established synonymies as well as additional relevant literature treating the taxon are included. A separate section encompasses twelve excluded or dubious species.

Resumen top ↑

Se presenta la revision de los géneros Rinodina y Rinodinella en la Peninsula Ibérica. Se tratan con detalle, “Buellia” parvula, de posicion taxonomica incierta, setenta y seis taxones de Rinodina y dos especies de Rinodinella. La primera parte del estudio incluye información general sobre los caracteres mas importantes de las especies, haciendo especial hincapié en los diferentes tipos de esporas, su desarrollo ontogenético y sus sustancias liquénicas. Se proporciona también una clave que incorpora todas las especies tratadas. Para cada especie se da una descripcion morfologica minuciosa, se comenta su habitat y distribucién en el area de estudio y se ilustran sus ascésporas. Ademas, para cada taxon se citan los sinonimos mas recientes y se menciona aquella bibliografia que incluye datos adicionales de intere’s. En un ultimo apartado, se comentan brevemente doce taxones dudosos y/o excluidos del area de estudio.

Mireia Giralt has been studying the Rinodina species in the Iberian Peninsula for over ten years, and has published some 13 papers on the genus to date. This new book represents a synthesis of her knowledge, and brings data on species growing on rock, trees, mosses, and lichens together. Seventy-six species of Rinodina and two of Rinodinella are accepted, along with "Buellia" parvula of uncertain generic position. The Iberian Peninsula is thus amongst the richest region for these lichens so far discovered. Information is also presented on 11 excluded species, mostly based on past misdeterminations. The species are keyed out by habitat, something which always worries me as it means that if a species turns up on a different substrate it may not be correctly identified. For eachspecies, full bibliographic citations and types are provided, but not basionyms and synonyms unless used in recent years; full synonymies would perhaps have made the work more comprehensive but at the same time would have increased the length substantially. Details of where further information can be sought is, however, provided, as are descriptions, notes on chemistry, observations and lists of specimens examined. Ascospore sketches are collected together in the final series of plates, but no habitat photographs or micrographs are provided; again, both would have been helpful, especially to show variation in ascospores as they mature, but this would have involved considerably more work. That the work is in English will greatly extend its audience and use around the Mediterranean, but I hope that this will not limit its use in the Iberian Peninsula itself. This is another example of the high level of understanding lichenology in Spain has reached, and the author is to be thanked for synthesizing her studies and making them more readily accessible.
