Dorset Lecanora chlarotera sens str.?

Post by JennyS »

I'm hoing I've finally come across a Dorset specimen of Lecanora chlarotera sens str. on a twig of a roadside Oak. Its a small thallus with a combination of darker, paler and bi-coloured apothecia and flanked on both sides by thalli of Lecanora hybocarpa.

Yes looks just like what I am getting as Lecanora chlarotera s. str. in the New Forest area, including the whiter light coming off the crystals in polarised light.
