Observation 98696: Hypogymnia krogiae Ohlsson
When: 2012-06-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found on some very old trees bordering a Christmas tree lot, this specimen stood out quite quickly. Still uncertain as the lobes are quite short and squat, however soredia are absent and the lobe tips are more rounded than most H. physodes I have seen.

The lobes look shorter than usual. It looks like it is growing on top of H. physodes (see the sorediate lobe tips in the upper left of the photo), but that just helps prove that thing in the rest of the photo is something different. I think H. krogiae grows longer lobes when the branches are more pendant. I have a few photos of specimens draped over branches where the lobes are shorter on top of the branch than the ones hanging off the sides.
