Observation 20338: Pseudocyphellaria lechleri (Müll. Arg.) Du Rietz

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 bank (first photo) and on boulder (second photo) in open coastal forest.

This one is characterized by deep brown, shiny, conspicuously wrinkly surface; all-black apothecia; white medulla, but pseudocyphellae on lower surface golden; covered with dark brown tomentum below.

I couldn’t collect either since they were in a preserve.
