CRITICAL NOTES ON THE GENUS CANDELARIELLA (LICHENES) IN ANTARCTICA

University of Trieste, Trieste, Italy
Lichenes flora of Antarctic Continent and Adjacent Islands report 429 species, distributed in 86 genera (Dodge, 1973). The main reason for this confused state of affiaris is that Dodge´s Flora (1973) is based on rather odd taxonomic criteria (see Almborn, 1974; Filson, 1982; Hertel, 1988).
