We don’t tend to be very on the ball adopting new taxonomy at MO. I keep making vague plans of writing some script which will incorporate all the many changes from the last three versions of the Esslinger checklist… but other priorities always intervene. I’ll fix this one, at least.

But surely there would be at least a few soralia visible. Could there be another Amandinea? No, not on the list at least. Out west there are a few others like… I can’t think of any names off the top of my head though! Maybe this is just what A. punctata does there… I’ll mind my own business next time, ha!
