The first records of Sticta andina and S. scabrosa subsp. scabrosa from Bolivia
are presented. All records are confirmed by molecular data. Sticta andina has flattened,
marginal isidia and phyllidia with abundant, submarginal apothecia, while tomentum is
dark brown to black, whereas, S. scabrosa subsp. scabrosa has marginal and laminal
phyllidia and pale to dark, grey tomentum. Two Bolivian specimens of the latter possess
sparse, marginal to laminal apothecia, which previously have not been observed in this
species. The haplotype network indicates that the S. andina specimens from Bolivia have
three haplotypes, two of which are different from those previously reported. In the case of
S. scabrosa subsp. scabrosa, two haplotypes were found, of which one is newly reported.
A distribution map of Sticta species confirmed for Bolivia is presented.
