Observation 60223: Pertusaria plittiana Erichsen
When: 2010-11-07
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: on siliceous sandstone outcrop in shaded forest near ridge top

This is the only saxicolous, poriform Pertusaria with norstictic acid in the Ozarks, so microscopy unnecessary. The UV+ ice-blue is not mentioned, but was reliable among the several specimens I collected.
