Observation 107768: Ophioparma lapponica (Räsänen) Hafellner & R.W. Rogers
When: 2012-08-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: on Si rock in the open

O. ventosa and O. lapponica are similar species, differing mainly in spore type. Although there are differences in thalline and apothecial characters, these are not always easy to use nor completely reliable." – Philip F. May (2007) www.nybg.org/bsci/lichens/eln/ophioparma.html

(as this was in the national park I was only allowed to collect a few apothecia)
