When: 2009-01-30

Collection location: Parque Nacional Los Glaciares, Santa Cruz, Argentina [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

No specimen available

I found this on some alpine moss in a very exposed cliff crevice. I assumed at first it was a muscicolous lichen (this area was very rich in such lichens), but it really looks more like a “plain old” ascomycete to me. It has concave brown disks that are white-scabrous outside.
