 Remarks:Phlyctis monosperma is characterised by the greyish white, loose, ±granular thallus, 1-spored asci, transversely 15-septate ascospores and the presence of the psoromic acid chemosyndrome. It resembles the New Zealand species, P. megalospora (P. James) D. Galloway & Guzmán, in that both species have 1-spored asci, contain psoromic acid and grow with mosses. The new species differs in possessing smaller ascospores with fewer septa, 130-180 x 30-40 µm and 15-septate, compared to 285-390 x 79-95 µm and 17-23-septate in P. megalospora, and lacking the atranorin and protocetraric acid present in the New Zealand species. The chemically similar species, P. psoromica Elix & Kantvilas differs in possessing 4-8-spored asci with smaller, 3-7-septate ascospores, 30-52 x 4-6 µm.
