C. leprieurii is not listed on the latest lichenological inventory of Bolivia (http://botan.botany.pl/...) though seven other species are.

Not sure of species

There’s only 2-3 species in N Amer. C. implexa (= Dimerella implexa I think) comes close, but I don’t think the algal mat is so perfectly regularly round like this. I saw something identical in P.N.Huerquehue in Chile, too. Each filament of algae is coated in a very thin single layer of fungal hyphae. Until it fruits (like yours) there’s no way to tell (in the field) that it is even lichenized. Neat things.

have seen and discussed this species before, perhaps even here, but the name completely escapes me at the moment. Jason?
