Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

Specimen available

Found on Nothofagus trunk in dry, open, young forest near edge of field.

This one is unmistakable: dark brown with conspicuous erumpent yellow soredia along margins and generally in dots or circles scattered on upper surface; medulla is apparently white, but the pseudocyphellae on the lower surface are golden (though I noted that they were uncommon); covered in dark brown tomentum below. It is common throughout southern Chile, south of 30°.
