sin más datos sería Xanthoparmelia sp.

Realmente es más informativo Neofuscelia con isidios, pero no se puede especificar más que hasta género y a la especie no llegamos. De acuerdo con Jason.

I don’t know

Could go either way. But I would use the old deprecated Neofuscelia, not Xanthoparmelia. At least until MO can handle subgenera. Neofuscelia is a perfectly good monophyletic clade, as I understand it. And immediately distinguishable from the rest of Xanthoparmelia at even the most casual glance. It’s just that if you recognize it at generic level, then Xanthoparmelia has to be blasted to pieces. Placing an observation within the Neofuscelia clade gives much more information than placing it within Xanthoparmelia in the broad sense.

is the better option. What do you think?
Thanks, Antonio and Jason, for your comments.

Xanthoparmelia verruculifera/ loxodes ?


M. disjuncta might be North American only

I can’t tell M. sorediata and M. disjuncta apart.

In fact, I hesitated …

between Melanelixia subaurifera and Melanelia sorediata, and maybe the latter is more adequate. About Melanelia disjuncta I don’t know it.

Looks more like Melanelia disjuncta or M. sorediata to me

M. subaurifera usually has isidia, but they are diffuse, minute, and always accompanied by at least some soredia. Isn’t it also exclusively on bark?
