Spores 13×4, hyaline, ellipsoid, algae in margin, crenulate, greg (?); thallus and apothecia margin K-, apothecia 4-10 (?), thick thulus (?); paraphyses branched, septate, capitate, brown tips, hyaline base; Black prothallus. (Disclaimer – I put (?) where I wasn’t sure how to read the markings on the packet – my lichenese is still rusty :-)

Alright, wise guy

There are lots of candidate Lecanora, though. It is, after all, the most speciose genus in North America. Hmmm, but I thought… Yes, exactly! Śliwa does have a dot in Michigan for L. zosterae, so it could definitely be there. Or… it could be any of, oh, a hundred other species. ;)

If it is, then I’d be the first to discover it :-)

Looks like this is dominated by a Lecanora sp.

On weathered wood, not apparently with any usnic acid, strongly constricted base, flexuose rims… I’m thinking L. zosterae … is that a possibility in Wisconsin?

Weathered floor of an outdoor structure reveals interesting potpurry.
