ABSTRACT
Peltigera hydrophila, a new species from Chile tentatively distinguished based on phylogenetic evidence but not yet named, is formally described here. Morphological differences (e.g., non-tomentose thallus) and habitat preferences (semi-aquatic) corroborate molecular and phylogenetic distinctiveness of this early diverging lineage in section Peltigera. Due to overlapping ecological ranges, P. hydrophila shares some morphological traits with aquatic species from the phylogenetically unrelated section Hydrothyriae.
