Observation 161312: Hypotrachyna (Vainio) Hale
When: 2014-03-01

For me this is another mystery. I was not able to find at least its genus. At a moment I thought it could be an Hypogymnia (namely, H. farinacea), but then I saw the photo of the underside displaying the rhizines. So, Hypogymnia has to be ruled out.

Admittedly I do not see any forked rhizines in the photo, though. But sometimes they can be hard to find. And Hypotrachyna recently has been expanded to include a number of non-forked-rhizines species like Parmelinopsis minarum, P. horrescens and P. spumosa.
