 Remarks:The new species Cladonia graeca is comparatively small and inconspicuous, with a stunted look. It is characterised by esorediate, pointed, phyllidiate podetia which become denudated and longitudinally slightly striate. It much resembles stunted forms of Cladonia decorticata (Flörke) Spreng. and C. macrophylla (Schaer.) Stenh., which have much larger and branchy podetia when well-developed. Both differ also chemically, the first containing perlatolic acid, the second psoromic acid, but they are probably the closest relatives of C. graeca. Rather similar species containing fumarprotocetraric acid include C. mongolica Ahti, from Central Asia, and C. ramulosa (With.) J.R. Laundon, widespread in Europe and also known from Greece. Both deviate by producing blunt podetia which terminate in more or less pronounced scyphi, often with hymenial discs, and their podetia do not become much denudated and striate.
