Ecology: Terricolous or lignicolous; growing sun-exposed or partially shaded; substrate non-calciferous. Thallus: Crustose, squamulose; branches scattered, clustered, or densely aggregated. Primary Thallus: Evanescent. Secondary Thallus: Present, of indeterminate or of determinate growth; stipe 30-60-(100) mm high, .5-4 mm wide, grey-green, lime green, or brown (heavily pruinose over most of podetium), homogeneously coloured, mottled, or tainted brown, corticate, with intact wall, 35-40 µm thick. Upper Surface: Smooth. Lower Cortex: Absent. Ascocarps: Forming along the margin of scyphi, moderately abundant, 1-5 mm in diam.. Disk: Weakly convex to strongly convex; brown. Conidiomata: Formed on margins of scyphi. Secondary Metabolites: Atranorin, fumarprotocetraric acid, and protocetraric acid, of the following substance class(es): ß-orcinol depsides and ß-orcinol depsidones. Spot Tests: Upper surface: K + bright yellow (citrine, lemon), C –, PD + red.
Ecology: Terricolous; growing sun-exposed; substrate non-calciferous. Thallus: Crustose, squamulose; lobes ascending or horizontal; branches loosely aggregated, clustered, or densely aggregated; separate thallus parts 1-3 mm long; .5-1.5 mm wide. Primary Thallus: Evanescent or rarely persistent. Secondary Thallus: Present, arising from center of the primary thallus, of indeterminate growth; stipe 30-80 mm high, .5-1.6 mm wide, lime green or brown (light to greyish yellow-green (121-122, 120), dark yellow brown at tips), homogeneously coloured or tainted brown, corticate, with intact wall. Thallus Outline: Margin crenulate. Upper Surface: Lime green (medium to greyish-, (120-122)), smooth; not sorediate. Lower Surface: White. Lower Cortex: Absent. Ascocarps: Forming along the margin of scyphi, moderately abundant. Disk: Brown. Conidiomata: Formed on podetia or on margins of scyphi. Secondary Metabolites: Atranorin, fumarprotocetraric acid, or protocetraric acid, of the following substance class(es): ß-orcinol depsides or ß-orcinol depsidones. Spot Tests: Upper surface: K + bright yellow (citrine, lemon), C –, PD + red.
