Observation 131880: Collemataceae Zenker

When: 2013-04-07

Collection location: Matinha de Queluz, Sintra, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

This is one more “Question mark” with respect to jelly lichens. I could not find anything similar growing on trees of the old continent. The dimension of the lobes, on one side, and the bluish color, on the other side, seems to point to Leptogium. On the other hand, the structure of lobes seems more close to those species of Collema like C. furfuraceum, C. nigrescens, or C. subnigrescens, by the existence of ridges on the lobes, which however are not so big and well defined as in those species, without any particular orientation. The lobes are thin and the overall appearance is wrinkly. No pustules neither isidia are present.
