The following species: Cetraria oakesiana, C. sepincola, Lobaria amplissima, L. scrobiculata, Nephroma bellum, Pannaria conoplea, Parmelia arnoldii, P. sinuosa, P. stuppea, Peltigera venosa, Ramalina obtusata, R. roesleri, R. thrausta, Sticta fuliginosa, S. sylvatica et Usnea longissima are comprised in the Red data lists of Austria, Germany and the European Community.
