One specimen was positively IDd at UW-Madison. And this name was given. But there might be more similar species – genus Arthonia is not well studied and almost no illustrations exist for most species (Wisconsin has 22 recognised species). And it could be another, similar looking genus too.
I took some risk (big one too – Jason is watching) to tentatively identify this and several similar looking observations as A. punctiformis – see Observation 64151, Observation 64287, Observation 88276. I’m working on collecting as many samples as I can, since Jim Bennett at UW-Madison seems to know this genus pretty well, and I hope he can help bring some clarity to these “white patches of maple” as I call them (most of the hosts are maples, but there could be other species).

so I guess we finaly find a name for this one
