Notes: I found this growing on a bit of moss on the side of the Alum Cave trail up to Leconte last year. I’m not positive of the ID, but the microscopic and chemical details of the ascomata are identical to Dibaeis baeomyces. According to the Ozarks keys there is a second, rare species, D. absoluta which is stalkless and which has a much less well-developed crust. This species is not currently listed for the park.
