No specimen available

Trunk of Podocarpus nubigenus in open, old montane forest.

This is characterized by broad, rounded, thick, flat, minutely cracked, pale milky-greenish lobes; pale to deep yellow medulla and pseudocyphellae on undersurface (especially in lines just under the margins); apothecia common. The surface is generally marked with marbled to extensive whitish maculae. There is considerable variation in the texture of the lobe surfaces: from conspicuously areolate-scabrid to minutely pubescent to almost smooth except at the lobe tips.

The white-balance is off here due to reflected light — it is not nearly as yellowish as it looks in this photo.
