Observation 131411: Xanthoria parietina (L.) Beltr.

When: 2013-03-30

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

Who: zaca

No specimen available

I think that concerning the lichen in this observation there are no great doubts: Xanthoria parietina. But it seems to be parasitised by a lichenicolous fungus, which is different from the one considered in observation 101511. At Lichenicolous fungi one can see a wide list of Lichenicolous fungi, thirty of which can occur on Xanthoria. Searching for photos, I found one very similar, Lichenoconium xanthoriae, but it can be others.
