New taxa from NYBG

A new press release recently came out from the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) highlighting discoveries of new taxa during the year 2011. Specifically mentioned in the release is the description of the orders Trapeliales and Sarrameanales from my Phytologia paper published last year. Additional taxa that I described (either published or in press in 2011) include Punctelia eganii and Lepidostroma vilgalysiiThis release is now being picked up by other websites, such as Science Daily.
