Observation 128405: Leptogium imbricatum P.M. Jørg.
When: 2013-02-10
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The determination of this species was done on the basis of the descriptions of Leptogium spp. in the British Flora. I tried but didn’t succeded to find photos of this species, nor at the usual sites with lichen photos neither in others. At the end, the best I could find was the page given in the reference; the author talk about peritecios as fruting bodies, what clearly is not possible. However, the form of that lichen is similar to my specimens, but not the color, which maybe a consequence of the habitat. All my specimens live on a fence that never receive the sunlight directly (sheltered place) and none present apothecia. The overall appearance is similar to that of L. gelatinosum, but the lobes are much smaller (five to ten times?).
