Observation 48395: Caloplaca decipiens (Arnold) Blomb. & Forss.
When: 2010-07-10
Collection location: Sintra, Portugal [Click for map]
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing in an old door jamb. At a first look the form reminds that of Xanthoria. However, the marginal lobes are lip-shaped and the inner lobes inner lobes with granular orange-yellow soredia. Some of the lobes present small orangish apothecia. After some search in the internet I found some species of Caloplaca with such characteristics, in particular, C. decipiens which is described in the references.
