The lichen genus Ramboldia is emended by inclusion of Pyrrhospora species containing the anthraquinone russulone in their apothecia and having a prosoplectenchymatous exciple. This is supported by anatomical characters. Phylogenetic analyses using maximum parsimony and Bayesian statistics of a combined data set of DNA sequences from nu LSU, mt SSU, and ITS gene regions revealed Pyrrhospora to be polyphyletic with the type species distinct from the russulone-containing Pyrrhospora species that...[Show more]
