The basidiolichens usually have “normal” nonlichenized fruiting bodies. It’s the mycelium that becomes lichenized (e.g., Multiclavula and Lichenomphalia). I wonder if Dictyonema has only vestigial mycelium left. Or does it have multiple strategies for acquiring nutrients?

Basidio families make no sense to me whatsoever!

Where are the spores on these things, anyway??

Wow, a lichen in the Hygrophoraceae

I thought that was a typo when I first read it.
