Collection location: Molega lake, Nova Scotia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Jess (Cosham)

No specimen available

Found near a large lake in mixed forest, adjacent to a small stream in old growth. Quite small(see finger photo for size reference), squamulose, appeared to have a blue-black hypothallus extending from beneath. Was thinking possibly Fuscopannaria however it’s quite far north for this genus.

There are (at least) three species of Fuscopannaria reported for Nova Scotia: F. ahlneri, F. leucosticta, F. praetermissa. (F. leucosticta is the only fertile one of the three.) But I agree, this looks much more like Protopannaria pezizoides to me.

Seems like
