Observation 20362: Pseudocyphellaria exanthematica Lamb
When: 2008-12-07
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Common on mossy and bare trunk of old Nothofagus in open montane forest.
20081207.21

Characterized by pale milky-greenish, shiny, smooth to weakly wrinkled, non-marked upper surface; conspicuous and often very well-developed lobules (“phyllidia” specifically) along the margins; white medulla and broad pseudocyphellae below; light to medium brown tomentum on the underside except in a generally well-defined smooth, naked margin. Apothecia seem to be passably common in addition to the phyllidia in my experience.

I collected a specimen from near Villa Santa Lucia in region Aisen (20090106.8).
