No specimen available

Growing on a vertical wall of siliceous rock, some meters apart from those in Observation 278394. Initially I supposed that all belong to the same species, but here the chemistry is a bit different from that observation and fits perfectly in B. subdisciformis. However, the spores are a bit bigger than those given in the British Flora for this species.


Another specimen;
Chemistry of the specimen in the previous photo; the K reaction was lost;
Microscopy: Something like an apothecial section (x100, in water);
Microscopy: apothecial section – KOH reaction (x100); reaction particularly intense at the bottom of the apothecium;
Microscopy: Hymenium just after the add of KOH (x400);
Microscopy: Hymenium views (x400, in KOH);
Microscopy: Asci and spores (x1000, in KOH);
Microscopy: Spores (x1000, in KOH);
