Cliostomum spribillei (Ramalinaceae, lichenized Ascomycetes), a new species from western North America
Cliostomum spribillei Goward & Tønsberg is described as new to science from Canada (British Columbia) and the U.S.A. (Idaho, Oregon and Washington) where it is corticolous on conifers in oldgrowth coniferous forests at high altitudes. It is easily distinguished from other Cliostomum species by its yellow, granular-sorediate thallus and production of usnic acid alone.
