The number of Candelariella species of known in the world is approximately

50 and in Turkey is 17. It has been determined that C. aurella is common in floristic

studies in Turkey. Although C. plumbea which resembles this species is widespread

in the world, it has not been found in the floristic studies made in our country. These

two species are thought to be mixed because of their ecological and morphological

similarities. In this study, the ecological, morphological and anatomical characteristics

of C. plumbea collected from 8 different localities were determined and the

characteristic features from C. aurella are given.
