Observation 44689: Peltigera phyllidiosa Goffinet & Miadlikowska

When: 2010-04-23

Collection location: Cabin Cove, Haywood Co., North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

Specimen available

Growing on several steep moss-covered rocks in steep north-facing moist ravine. The best (read: healthiest) specimens were on permanently damp surfaces, but there were a few dried-out ones a little farther from active seeps. Note the super-abundant minute, almost isidioid, lobules all along the margins, cracks, even on patches of the surface and some apothecia. Even the most lobulate P. polydactylon and P. elisabethae never look like this. P. praetextata is never so shiny and has totally different veins. (Apparently P. collina is closely related, as well.)
