Specimen available

HABITAT open oak forest on steep north slope; SUBSTRATE mossy outcrop in oak forest on north slope; ASPECT shaded; NOTES small-lobed thick thallus, upturned margins, dull surface with very thin tomentum right at the margins and on the surface of a few lobe tips, rhizines short and simple to tufted, veins turning brown, phyllidia in interior, margins strongly crisped in interior too.

This is such a diminutive specimen that I’m convinced it’s got to be something different than usual. It seems to match the description for P. monticola perfectly, but until I see authentic material, there’s just no way to be sure…


On shaded mossy outcrop, damp.
