Brief description, advantages, further prospects for application.
The work is based on the materials of 9 expedition trips (Dnepropetrovsk, Kirovograd, Transcarpathian, Mykolaiv, Rivne, Ternopil, Chernivtsi, Kherson regions), during which about 800 samples of lichens and lichenophilic fungi were collected and 180 epilithic descriptions were made. The species composition of lichens and lichenophilous fungi was checked at the Laboratory of Biodiversity and Ecological Monitoring named after V.I. J.K. Pachosky Kherson State University using microscopes MBS-2 and MICROMED-2.
For the first time for the science described a new association of lichen Verrucarioviridulae-StaurotheletumhymenogoniaeKhodosovtsev, Darmostuk & Didukh (holotypus: Khodosovtsevetal, 2018:. Table 1, relevé 8, Fig.2) In the presence of diagnostic species it belongs to the Union AspicilioncontortaeRoux 2009 order AspicilietaliacalcareaeRoux 2009 klassaVerrucarieteanigrescentisWirth 1980. The close association Caloplacetumlactea -marmorataeRoux 2009 However, in terms of floristic composition, diagnostic species, chorological and ecological characteristics, the latter differs significantly from the new association described by us (Khodosovtsevetal., 2019).
Also, for the first time, a species of algophilic fungus Epibryonkondratyukii Khodosovtsev & Darmostuk (Darmostuk and Khodosovtsev, 2019) is described, which forms symbiotic bonds with algae films that develop on bryophyte leaves among granite outcrops.
