Observation 89121: Acarospora nodulosa (Dufour) Hue

When: 2012-03-03

Collection location: Planalto das Cezaredas, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Observations MO89115 to MO89122 took place at an old fence inside a small village, made of the (calcareous) local stones and some soil.

The place is the same of Observation 73080, where I found again the species Acarospora nodulosa and Diploschistes scruposus living side by side. It is known that the first of this species parasitized the thallus of Diploschistes and this seems to be an example of that.


Diploschistes scruposus on the left and Acarospora nodulosa on the right.
