Xanthoparmelia (= Neofuscelia)

pienso que actualmente Xanthoparmelia (= Neofuscelia).

Podría haber una Melanelia glabra en roca, pero no es lo más normal en la Península Ibérica.

Es más normal que en roca y con ese aspecto se trate de una especie del grupo de Xanthoparmelia pulla (= Neofuscelia pulla)


That’s amazing!

As soon as I open my mouth about Neofuscelia being totally different from the rest of Xanthoparmelia (Neofuscelia is brown, Xanthoparmelia is greenish-gray in North America)… Here we have a brown Xanthoparmelia which is not in the Neofuscelia clade. You’d think I’d learn to keep my big mouth shut!

For whatever it’s worth, I was totally behind Melanelia glabra, too, until Anto corrected us.
