Diversity of secondary lichen metabolites was studied in epiphytic lichens on six phorophytes-spruce, pine, birch, alder, aspen and poplar in the Middle Urals of Russia. Atranorin, usnic, fumarprotocetraric acid, zeorin, and gyrophoric acid were found in 31, 24, 23, 18, and 14 species, respectively, of 237 taxa collected. Seventy-seven species (i.e...

Elemental profiles were studied in thalli of a representative of Circinaria from Bogdinsko-Baskunchakskiyreserve (Astrakhan region, Russia). The highest concentration of iron, silica and aluminium were found in the cortex ofthe thalli. In the deeper layers the concentration of the elements decreases but the concentration of aluminium does notdepend...

The data on the locations of Caloplaca grimmiae (Nyl) Oliv. are presented. In the Middle Urals this species grows mainly on well-warmed up rocky outcrops at river banks. Caloplaca grimmiae is probably appear to be resistant to air pollution, however has а narrower ecological range in comparison with its host species.

Questions

Question (1)
Question
I am checking specimens of lichens which were described in 1910 without holotypes selected. Some of them are syntypes, some were described on basis of a single specimen but divided on 2 of three parts those are kept in LE (Russia), BM and PC. These specimens need to be lectotypified and synonimised with another species. And here the problem arises. According to the art. 9.12 of the Melbourne Code “In lectotype designation, an isotype must be chosen if such exists, or otherwise a syntype if such exists”. In fact I can lectotypify specimens kept in LE but I am not sure to fulfil the art. 9.12. Pictures of specimens with the same field numbers in BM and PC are very identical with those I have studied in LE but one can not be absolutely sure without checking “alive” specimens because the main features (spores, conidia, chemistry) are inside specimens. It is very problematic to loan these collections because even though I receive them I am not sure to be able to send them back because of strict customs rules.
Thanks to every wise person who knows what to do in this situation.
