Collection location: Pasadena, California, USA [Click for map]
On base of a Chinese(?) fan palm just inside spray zone of sprinklers. On Bellfontaine between St John and Orange Grove.
THALLUS: apparently lacking, also apparently no medulla
APOTHECIA: clustered, lecanorine, rim decoricate, paraphyses strongly adherent, all parts K-, hymenium strongly IKI+ blue
SPORES: 8 per ascus, hyaline, elliptical, smooth, weakly septate, 10-12 × 4-4.5 µm
I’m told the waxy appearance of the apothecia is typical for this species. This is the first time I’ve seen this in southern California.
