Substrate: Soil amongst shrubs.
Habitat: Arid. Dunes, about 20m from shore. Underneath shrubs, particularly Chuquicaya avelloneda.
I think that this is growing with a Collema sp. but is not a Collema by any means, though some of the Collema sp. apothecia seem to be present too… but maybe these are just the odd ball apothecia of the Collema around here? Not sure, but I think these peltate squamules are not apothecia, though there does apear to be a few flat Collema type apothecia in the back of the photos.

The rearrangement of the species pages was all Nathan’s work! All I did was say “yes that looks great, you have my permission to release it”. :)
there are other specimens from other areas of the reserve that fit really well, at least superficially…
P.S. I really like the new pages for the genus and species — having ¨most confident¨ observations pop up at the top, having the description page right there. Love it! Awesome Jason!!!
But I wouldn’t rule out Collema for the top photo until you’re sure which of those disks are squamules (the convex ones with dimples in the center?) and which are apothecia… These are so hard to photograph even in good conditions.
