Additional species of Graphis from Maharashtra, India
Our recent investigations of the lichen flora of Maharashtra have brought to light several new taxa in the family Graphidaceae. Nine species of Graphis with muriform ascospores are recognized of which two, G. maharashtrana and G. elevativerrucosa, are described as new to science. One new combination, G. panhalensis is proposed. Two species, G. galactoderma and G. parilis, are recorded from India for the first time, and G. platycarpa and G. subducta are reported for the first time from Maharashtra. Graphis sp. 1 is clearly distinguished from the other species, but is not formally described as new to science as the material is scanty. A revised key to all species of Graphis from Maharashtra is provided.
