Observation 82667: Diploschistes scruposus (Schreber) Norman

When: 2011-11-16

Collection location: Hörnefors, Västerbotten, Sweden [Click for map]

Who: Irene Andersson (irenea)

No specimen available

It was a question of muscorum or scruposus.

Two things that speaks for scruposus:
1. the spore size, 30-38 my (rarely over 30 in muscorum). Might add photos later.. I wasn’t able to separate any asci.
2. the growth on acid rocks (all swedish obses of muscorum are on limestone).

I didn’t have the camera with me, so I just brought a small piece (15 mm) of the lichen home.
