A phylogenetic analysis of Melanelia tominii and four new records of brown parmelioid lichens from China
The molecular analysis based on ITS nrDNA sequences indicates that Melanelia tominii probably belongs to Melanelixia. Four new records from China — Melanelia predisjuncta, Melanohalea subelegantula, M. olivaceoides, and M. septentrionalis — are reported. A key to the 21 species belonging to Melanelixia, Melanohalea and Melanelia from China is provided.
