Observation 44439: Peltigera neopolydactyla (Gyeln.) Gyeln.
When: 2009-12-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I just noticed this when going back through my photos. This is definitely not the usual P. neopolydactyla that I was seeing everywhere on this trip. The uniformly pale undersurface without any veins makes it key out clearly as P. hymenina, a species that I have very little information on. It is known to occur in the park. It was near the end of the Boogerman Trail on a mossy log near a small creek.

Used references: Trevor Goward corrected my ID. He says veins are variable among P. neopolydactyla group. The rhizines, on the other hand appear to be diagnostic. I believe he used the term “dead ringer”.
