Found this on very mossy tree trunk in Valdivian rainforest.
This is an unusual species endemic to (but common in) southern Chile characterized by lack of apothecia, soredia, isidia and lobules (how does it propogate then?); distinctive slate-blue color (apparently very striking when wet) which is conspicuously marbled with reticulate white to yellow maculae; yellow medulla and pseudocyphellae underneath; dark tomentum covering all but a narrow pale yellow margin below. The blue tint is from cyanobacteria.
