Good, you’ve obviously already considered them all!

From what I can tell, this is an interesting find, whatever it is. Either too far south or too far north or too thick or too rough… or some combination of the above! :)

With a microscope someone could check if the stereome if continuous or made of coarse strands. Chemistry should also help narrow it down… I just don’t remember the differences between them (it may require TLC?) So if you sent a specimen to someone they might be able to clear up the confusion.

could be ?

I am agreed: too far, too far. I have C. carolineana (?) from the same location #202802 and will add more differently looking #224418. For C. dimorphoclada I just add #224418 from Gulf Coast.

I think it’s too far south for boryi

What about C. caroliniana? Looks too broad for C. dimorphoclada… oh, but could also be C. pachycladodes (too far north for that one??)
