Squamarina is a genus of lichens currently placed in the family Stereocaulaceae,[1] although it has recently been suggested that it may belong in the family Ramalinaceae.[2] The genus has a widespread distribution, and contains 28 species.[3] They form patches of radiating lobes or overlapping scales, with a well-developed upper cortex and no lower cortex.[4] They grow on calcareous soil and rocks.[4] Squamarina lentigera can be used to make a yellow dye.[5]
