Buellia epigaea
, a terricolous lic
henized fungal species known from numerous localities
in Northern Hemisphere, but only from Australia in Southern Hemisphere, is reported
from Antarctica for the first time. Here we provide morphological, anatomical, and
molecular characteristics (nrITS) o
f this species. Besides, the differences of
B. epigaea
with morphologically, ecologically or phylogenetically related species are discussed.
