I bet that’s Herbarium Nylander

“sine coll.” maybe means collector not recorded… But where would Nova Granata be, I have no idea…

Galloway lists a lectotype: “Lectotype: Nova Granata. Sine coll., H-NYL 33203!” I have no idea what that means, though.

And it could be that my photos are misidentified! NZ has an excellent flora thanks in large part (entirely?) to D. Galloway… tropical Andes not so much. :( Yet another reason it’s so good to document your P. dolichorrhiza — it’s the first specimen I’ve seen which we can be certain of. (I wonder where the type locality is?)

Thanks, Jason. Yeah, I was looking at your pics from South America and noting that they looked a lot more greenish, and the apothecia seemed more sessile. Could be that the NZ and South American versions of the species need to be separated.

How nice that it keys out so clearly; such a rarity in this genus! :)

Surprisingly dark apothecia, but I agree that it can’t be in the neckeri-collina group, since that group has very different veins. Useful observation. Thanks!
