Taxon_split-aaaaaa-48px Taxonomic Split 10164 (Committed on 2015-01-23)

N. emarginata was split by Marko et al. 2003 based on morphology, mtDNA, and cross-breeding, and WoRMS seems to support this split. There's an extensive description of the differences at http://www.asnailsodyssey.com/LEARNABOUT/WHELK/whelNuce.php.

The shell of either species can be smooth or ribbed, however, in ribbed specimens, N. ostrina possesses smooth ribs without knobs, whereas N. emarginata has ribs that are knobbly.

N. ostrina is the more northerly species, ranging from Yakutat, AK to Point Conception, CA.

N. emarginata sensu stricto ranges from San Francisco, CA down through Baja. Both species occur in central CA, where the two ranges overlap.

In Central California, N. emarginata is found in slightly more sheltered situations such as coastal embayments, and is not found on the most exposed parts of the coastline.

Holloway (2008) listed Ragana (of which gravatalis is the type species) as a junior synonym of Hydrillodes, thus gravatalis is combined with Hydrillodes, not Ragana.

PLEASE DO NOT COMMIT. Waiting to make a decision on whether to switch to Esslinger as our NA lichen authority.

Esslinger, Brodo, and MO all support Heterodermia leucomela, though Heterodermia leucomelos does seem to be current in Species Fungorum. Also, Esslinger doesn't recognize subspecies.

Since SF is WAY out of date on this one, I propose we establish Esslinger as a regional authority for North American lichens. Though I'm also kind of tempted to set MO as the global authority for fungi. Not sure what their coverage is like outside of the US, though...
