I was on a tour. I’d escape every chance I got, but I didn’t get much time for botanizing. Just enough to snap photos of the most conspicuous things. I was only able to collect a few tiny specimens pressed in my Spanish dictionary. Most specimens were from Machu Picchu (you’ll understand why when you see them! :) I only took one specimen from the Amazon – the Parmotrema latissimum – I figured I actually had a good chance of naming that one. Only later did I discover that there were apparently a few species that are also present in southern Florida or Costa Rica (where literature is available to me).
But… I do have a fair specimen of this Sarcographa labyrinthica from southern Florida from December 2013 which I’ll hopfully post later. It’s so distinctive I feel okay applying the name at least tentatively to this photo from the Amazon.
Make me think how is it possible that all this happens in our planet. So different from what I´m used to see around here! Congratulations, thanks for sharing and don´t stop posting.
I chose this particular observation by somewhat personal taste; the most similar I could already found was Glyphis cicatricosa, with apothecia assembled in a stroma. Did you already looked for the asci and spores?
