No specimen available

Very similar to the specimen presented in MO48641, this time in a living oak tree (Quercus faginea; the other observation was on Quercus suber). The description given in the reference match quite well. More precisely: Greenish-grey thallus; Lobes with light-brown or whitish under surface, darker-brown at centre; Farinose soredia rising from white, punctiform pseudocyphellae; Apothecia present (although discrebed as very rare), concave red-brown discs with smooth or slightly sorediate margins; KC+ red or red-yellow on Soredia. The photos were obtained at two different point of the tree.
The first two photos attached were taken at two different points on the same tree.
