Observation 48554: Micarea denigrata (Fr.) Hedl.
When: 2010-07-12
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: on shaded old dirty weathered wood in chaparral at around 3000’

(Note, the C+r spot test is tricky: I found that it happened in a few tiny scattered spots, and in fact I failed to notice the first time I tried it. The C+r reaction on the epihymenium is more reliable seen under microscope.)
