Jim Bennett had better specimen, it seems,

or the one that survived better. It’s about half inch by half inch rock, covered by the “subject”. But his verdict is “no ID – highly eroded sterile thallus” :-(

I’ll suggest it to James! :)

I think it was just too scanty to do anything with. You need enough material to be confident of the type of soralia, and have enough to be able to spare some for TLC. This was just a bunch of dust scraped off the rock! :)

Insufficient?

Meaning they couldn’t identify it without reproductive parts, or that the specimen was too scanty to be worthy of keeping?

Maybe if you put it on your windowsill for a few decades it will produce an apothecia or something identifiable!

The specimen was insufficient for NYBG to do anything with it. This will have to remain a mystery.

Chemistry interesting

K~ C+ pink KC+ gold P- UV-. But no apothecia, perithecia, pycnidia, soredia, isidia, anything. Not much to go on. :( Maybe some species of Biatora??

Might it look like this before it produces apothecia?
