Observation 52042: Lecidea Ach.

When: 2010-08-15

Collection location: Planalto das Cezaredas, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Growing in a zone of calcareous rocks.
This was a stop and go observation, so only the time to take some pictures. Therefore, even the genus seems to be doubtful (Porpidia would be another hypothesis). Nevertheless, being something different from the ones in my usual places of observations, I decided to present it here.
Some remarks: In some of the apothecia the thallus make itself a rim arround the fruting body; In some zones some black dots (isidia?) are visible (in the description of the genus from the reference, isidia is declared unknown); The thallus is pale, more or less smooth and cracked, wiht an orange tint on it in some zones.
