Observation 20335: Pseudocyphellaria argyracea (Delise) Vainio

When: 2008-11-29

Collection location: Reserva Nacional Los Ruiles, Maule, Chile [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

No specimen available

Found on mossy base of Nothofagus trunk in deep coastal forest.

This is a much better match for the description given in South American Pseudocyphellaria (Galloway 1992): grayish to tan, matte, with conspicuous white pseudocyphellae on the upper surface; coarse to coralloid isidia on margins and scattered in spots laminally, associated with pseudocyphellae; medulla and lower pseudocyphellae clearly white; lower surface pale brown tomentose.

I couldn’t collect this since it was in a preserve.
