Observation 112935: Sticta dufourii Delise
When: 2012-10-05
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This together with observation 112936, observation 112937 and observation 112938 exhaust the species mentioned in the British Flora for the genus Sticta, respectively:
S. dufourii,S. limbata, S. fuliginosa and S. sylvatica.
Till now I had encountered all these species, except the second one, which I observed here for the first time. All the observations took place at the same location (see some notes about it at location 5970).
It should be mentioned that S. dufourii is the blue-green morph (with a cyanobacteria as photobiont) of the species S. canariensis that in sens str. as a green alga as photobiont (green morph). This species is also reported from Portugal. Maybe there are others, who knows? I’ll post other observations
from this location, some of which I’m not so certain about the classification.

I forgot to add the specific name of the species in addition to the genus, since I initially created all the four observation with the name of the genus.
Regarding the place, please see the notes of the location. It is terrific!

This is S. dufourii, right?

Amazing you found all four in the same place. This must be an amazing location. Do you have any feel for why it is so rich?
