Title: Distribution of the legally protected lichen species Solorina saccata in Hungary
Year: 2018
Volume: 49
Pages: 47-70.


Abstract: Solorina saccata received endangered status in the Hungarian lichen red list in 1997, and legal protection in Hungary in 2013. Based on its ca 200, old and recent, herbarium and literature records ca 100 localities from the Aggtelek karst (1), Bakony Mts (29), Balaton Uplands (5), Buda Mts (8), Bükk Mts (7), Gerecse Mts (6), Keszthely Mts (10), Kőszeg Mts (2), Pilis Mts (2) and Vértes Mts (30) are registered. Th ese currently known occurrence data are presented on a distribution map. Although it seems to be common at present in its potential habitats in the Transdanubian Mountain Range, these habitats are considered to be under real risk of habitat destruction and fragmentation parallel to the global tendency of population shrinkage of the species in Europe. In addition, habitat preferences and population dynamical conditions of Solorina saccata, necessary also for conservational purposes, are still insufficiently known. Maintaining the current condition of its habitats is crucial for the effective protection.
