Strange and stranger yet.

Yes, it seems like that.

I don’t know if you refer to observation 97073, but that time the strange reaction was with C test.

You find the strangest chemical races of things!

I’m forced to agree with you, but that weak K reaction really bothers me. I seem to remember you getting something like this at least once before, too. There is this other species, Parmotrema commensuratum — maybe it could contain enough salazinic acid to cause a P+ test but not the usual strong K+ blood red? Very odd. Sure looks like P.reticulatum
