Observation 33601: Dibaeis arcuata
When: 2010-02-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes:
Apothecium: 3-5mm in diameter by 2-3mm in height, pale orangish pink in colour.
Stipe: 8-10mm long by 1-2mm in diameter, slightly flattened with a sparse pruinose pinkish white bloom, pale pink flesh.
Habitat: On a vertical red clay bank amongst mosses and other lichens at about 300 meters above sea level in Native New Zealand Forest.

It’s interesting that the lichen takes it’s name from the fungus that associates with a specific algae!

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:02:27 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Lone Kauri Rd, Waitakere Ranges, Auckland, New Zealand.’ to ‘Lone Kauri Rd., Waitakere Ranges, Auckland, New Zealand’

A lichen with Cudonia-like structures instead of apothecia?

That’s it,
