Wilketalia S.Y.Kondr., a new name for Andina Wilk, Pabijan & Lücking, nom. illeg. (Teloschistaceae, lichenized Ascomycota)

Kondratyuk S.Y., Mosyakin S.L.

A new generic name, Wilketalia S.Y.Kondr. (nom. nov.; Teloschistaceae, lichenized Ascomycota), is published to replace the name Andina Wilk, Pabijan & Lücking (nom. illeg.), which is an illegitimate later homonym of Andina J.A.Jiménez & M.J.Cano (Pottiaceae, Bryophyta) and Andinia (Luer) Luer (Orchidaceae). A new species-rank combination Wilketalia citrinoides (Wilk & Lücking) S.Y.Kondr. (Andina citrinoides ilk & Lücking) is also validated. Brief nomenclatural comments are provided.

Keywords: Andina, homonymy, new name, nomenclature, taxonomy, Teloschistaceae, Wilketalia
