The long-neglected lichen described as Cladonia trapezuntica was rediscovered thanks to the MBZ Fund. Molecular, morphological, and chemical analyses resulted that C. trapezuntica is a robust morphotype of Pycnothelia papillaria. Consequently, the southeastern distribution limit of P. papillaria is extended to Turkey. This species was evaluated as critically endangered (CR) based on several criteria.
