 Remarks:Cercidospora species are mainly distinguished by the color of the exciple, the number of ascospores per ascus, size, shape and septation of the ascospore, and host selection (Navarro-Rosinés et al. 2009). Among the other Cercidospora species with mainly 3-septate ascospores C. ochrolechiae is most similar to C. cladoniicola Alstrup and C. lecidomae Zhurb. & Triebel (Table 1). It is noteworthy that ascospore characters of Cercidospora lecidomae require further studies (Alstrup et al. 2008). Besides Cercidospora ochrolechiae, Pertusariales hosts another 11 species of the genus representing about 1/3 of its species diversity: C. anomala Etayo, C. apiosporoides (Vouaux) Nav.-Ros., Hafellner & Calat., C. epipolytropa (Mudd) Arnold, C. galligena Hafellner & Nav.-Ros., C. lecidomae, C. lobothalliae Nav.-Ros. & Calat., C. mutabilicola Calat., Nav.-Ros. & Hafellner ad int., C. solearispora Calat., Nav.-Ros. & Hafellner, C. thamnoliicola Ihlen, C. verrucosaria (Linds.) Arnold and C. werneri Nav.-Ros., Calat. & Hafellner (Calatayud & Barreno 1994, Ihlen 1995, Navarro-Rosines et al. 1996, 2004, 2009, Kukwa & Flakus 2009, Etayo 2010). Nine of these are specific to a particular host genus. No Cercidospora species has previously been reported on Ochrolechia, one species (C. anomala) was known on Pertusaria. However, the latter is clearly distinguished from Cercidospora ochrolechiae by its widely ellipsoid aseptate ascospores.
