Observation 47947: Peltula patellata (Bagl.) Swinscow & Krog
When: 2010-05-20
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This was very hard to be certain of since there was only one badly-formed, immature apothecium on all of my specimens. Consider this ID educated guesswork. It could also be Heppia, conceivably.
