These were my doubts!

I found no alternative for the genus Degelia; the chemistry looks wrong and the overall look is diferent than D. atlantica, that I found before. On the other hand, the isidia looks right for that species.

Degelia should have no secondary chemistry

According to the British Flora, TLC has detected no secondary substances in the genus. But what else can this possibly be? I guess you are familiar with the distinction between the two isidiate species? According to the British Flora,

D. atlantica has knob-like, erect, terete, branched to coralloid isidia
D. ligulata has erect or decumbent, flattened, elongate, spathulate schizidia
