No specimen available

This is a quite common species of Caloplaca here (see, for instance, observation 88869 for a similar specimen) and still didn´t got a good name for it. It differs from Caloplaca cerina by the lighter thallus and by the more reddish apothecia with bright yellow margins; On the other hand, it differs from C. flavorubescens in the chemistry, since it reacts K- on thallus, and by the presence of a discrete black prothallus.
