Abstract

Callistosporium pinicola has been collected at ten localities in the Czech Republic. They represent the first records in this country. Three finds from Ukraine are published as well. Detailed macro– and microscopic descriptions of the species are provided. C. pinicola grows on strongly decayed fallen trunks of Abies alba and Picea abies, however, it has once also been found on a frondose tree. Its preference for old-growth forests with spruce and fir in the Czech Republic is discussed, including its possible usage as a local bioindicator of such forests. It is very interesting that all collections of C. pinicola in the Czech Republic are recent (collected in the period 2004–2008). It suggests that the species is spreading for unknown reasons. In Europe, C. pinicola usually occurs in localities fulfilling two conditions: a humid climate and strongly decayed wood.
