Candelariella corviniscalensis C.A. Morse & M. Westb., 2011

Etymology: The epithet corviniscalensis (from Latin corvinus "of crows" plus scala "staircase, ladder" and by extension "perch" or "roost") commemorates Crow's Roost, the colloquial place name for the type locality and the only known locality of the new species.
