Observation 107661: Buellia De Not.

When: 2012-08-20

Collection location: Baleal, Peniche, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Growing on rock in the supralitoral zone.
There are a number of Buellia spp. with similar characteristics to this specimen. Due to the habitat I think that it may be B. subdisciformis or B. stellulata (see theseashore and Irish lickens). I didn’t make the spot tests, but I collect a sample and made the corresponding microscopy. The spores are of buellia type: brown, 1-septate, small (~ 10 × 6 µm).
