Well in WIsconsin we’re supposed to have three species:

If it was here I would call it P. nigrum, but i don’t know what are the N. A. species. That was my only reserve.

If it’s Placynthium it’s got to be P.nigrum.

There are only three species listed in Thomson, and Bennett didn’t add any more either, so there aren’t that many choices. I wasn’t even sure it was Placynthium since other observations I have of that genus differ from this one. Perhaps, I was fooled because this one is wet and lush, but other observations were collected in dry places. But if Placynthium, prothallus is usually typical for P.nigrum.
