Lichen on a stem in beech forest.
the only Pseudocypharelia spotted on the Devils Gulch trail- and it was up high on a tree trunk.
probably P. anthraspis, as I think I see one small orange apothecium...
Growing on Doug Fir near laurel dell picnic area
Locally common in cloud forest. Cyanobacterial. Thallus often charcoal black. undersides densely covered in dark brown to black hairs, sparsely pseudocyphellate, upper surface densely invested in pustular soredia.
As currently understood such lichens fit the broad concept of P. intricata but in reality are probably not that species. Further research is needed.
Vouchers lodged in AK.
Common on a range of hosts including Weinmannia samoensis and Microsorum rhizomes - one of the most common Lobariaceous lichens seen in the islands cloud forest. Thallus cyanobacterial. Specimens rather variable but fitting the broad concept of this species in having the upper thallus surface pseudocyphellate, and these often bearing isidia. Specimens lodged in AK.
