Data from: A taxonomic revision of the North American species of Lepraria s.l. that produce divaricatic acid, with notes on the type species of the genus L. incana.

James C. Lendemer
The divaricatic acid-producing populations of Lepraria in North America north of Mexico are revised using traditional morphological characters, chemistry, ecology, biogeography, and ITS1, 5.8S, and ITS2 sequence data. Three taxa are accepted: L. cryophila, L. hodkinsoniana sp. nov., and L. pacifica sp. nov. Both Lepraria crassissima and L. incana are excluded from the study area. Non-cryptic, semi-cryptic, and fully-cryptic species concepts in Lepraria are discussed with a special emphasis on the practical integration of molecular...
