Observation 34965: Sticta carolinensis McDonald
When: 2010-03-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The Ozarks key includes a simple description distinguishing the three related species:

Sticta beauvoisii — large, broad lobes
Sticta carolinensis - small lobes, K medulla (I’ve seen K+ weakly pinkish)
Sticta fragilinata — small lobes, K+ red medulla (anthraquinone?)

All three have ruffled grayish foliose lobes with abundant dark gray isidia and/or lobules along the margins. (Other isidiate Sticta have isidia all over the lobes, not just the margin.)
