The taxonomic delimitation and generic placement of Santessoniella crossophylla (Old Gray Crosslobes), a cyanolichen endemic to eastern North America, are revisited based on newly generated nrITS and mtSSU sequences. A population from Nova Scotia whose identification as S. crossophylla has been questioned is confirmed as belonging to the species. The monospecific genus Rockefellera is introduced to accommodate lichens ascribable to S. crossophylla in light of molecular results herein presented. The new name honors the Rockefeller family for their century-long support of North American conservation efforts, particularly with respect to national parks.
This is a zipped folder that contains the following items:
1) Images of the lectotype (HUH377480).
2) Images of the specimen from Nova Scotia (N942)
3) Input alignments for combined mtSSU and ITS analyses (MP=parsimony, ML=likelihood, BI=Bayesian Inference).
4) Initial mtSSU and ITS individual alignments.
5) Excel spreadsheet of specimens of Santessoniella crossophylla examined.
