to verify the spelling.

I did notice your name in that book,

but I forgot about that this morning. Sooo…, Here is what I found in the link you provided. “Biscogniauxia atropunctata (Schwein.) Pouzar, Česká Mykol.
33: 216 (1979) var. atropunctata” I don’t fully understand this naming.
Does the name include the varietal designation? and from the comma after Pouzar until var. – What’s with that?

Awful name to spell

I helped edit that book and evidently we missed that misspelling.

I personally like dropping the ‘var.’ suffix

But that is what is in the book referenced! It this name deprecated?

Yep, it’s an asco note the black peripetheses (whence atropunctata)

Do you know what the substrate is?

I think the correct name is Biscogniauxia atropunctata, but MO doesn’t recognize it.

Fungus or Lichen?

I don’t know how to classify this guy – it looks like some ascomycetes, but some lichens are similarly looking too. I don’t know if MO deals with lichens – I have quite a few needing IDs.
