Abstract

Two new white-scaled species,  R. argenteolimbata and  R. albomata  have been isolated by one of us (Volk). R. argenteolimbata has a compact thallus with stiff, regular scales and apolar spores, whereas R. albomata has a
somewhat more spongy structure of the thallus, large, frilly, hyaline scales and polar spores.
