Observation 98664: Lecidella carpathica Körber
When: 2012-06-29
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: On basalt. According to Knoph and Leuckert L. carpathica should not have a prothallus, while there does sort of seem to be one in the photo. I’ll find the specimen and look carefully. (Posting this observation because of nice specimen recently collected, which I’ll post next.)

That has to be the finest photo of an ascus stain I’ve ever seen!
