Description

Corticolous on exposed rawiri (Kunzea linearis) trunks on margin of a rawiri / rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) forest overlooking steep cliffs. Abundant. Growing admixed with Leptogium denticulatum, L. cyanescens, L. sp., Podostictina pickeringii, Pseudocyphellaria aff. crocata, Dendroceros granulatus, Frullania spp., and Microsorum pustulatum. Thallus green above, pale-white to dirty below, without soredia or maculae; medulla white; upper thallus surface copiously covered in minute pseudocyphellae, these often developing isidia, especially centrally where over time the isidia become coralloid and form a distinct crust; thallus lobes much divided, linear-elongate with isidiate-phyllidiate margins. Apothecia not seen.

Description

This is not P. crocata s.s. but an unnamed entity (P. aff. crocata "minute") within the New Zealand members of that complex. Corticolous on exposed rawiri (Kunzea linearis) trunks on margin of a rawiri / rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) forest overlooking steep cliffs. Uncommon, minute (this example at 25 mm diameter very large for this unnamed entity) foliose lichen; thallus simple (not much divided); medulla yellow; upper surface dark coal-black to blue-black when dry, dark chocolate black to purple-black when fresh, very sparingly sorediate, soredia mostly central rather than marginal, pustular, yellow. Apothecia not seen. Growing admixed with Pseudocyphellaria wilinsii, Podostictina pickeringii, Pannaria crenulata, P. elixii, Physcia sp.; Heterodermia appendiculata, Pertusaria sp., Frullania rostrata agg., and Frullania fugax. Specimens lodged in F, UNITEC, DNA extracted.

Description

Corticolous on exposed rawiri (Kunzea linearis) trunks on margin of a rawiri / rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) forest overlooking steep cliffs. Common, large foliose lichen; thallus borne on prominent, hold fast, broadly digiform, lobulate, lobes broad, upper surface green (when wet, image of drought dessicated individual), undersides tomentose, dirty brown-grey, with prominent cyphellae. Apothecia orange. Throughout Unuwhao Forest Sticta latifrons was easily the most conspicuous macro-lichen seen, specimens often reaching up to 800 mm diameter and festooning tree trunks and branches in massive cabbage-like tangles.

Description

Corticolous on exposed rawiri (Kunzea linearis) trunks on margin of a rawiri / rewarewa (Knightia excelsa) forest overlooking steep cliffs. Common, large foliose lichen; thallus simple (not much divided) green above when moist (image in dry state), white beneath, pseudocyphellae minute, sparse; upper surface finely punctate impressed, often with pyncidia on ridges; margins virtually entire (very rarely phyllidiate); apothecia dark red-black. Growing admixed with Pannaria crenulata, P. elixii, Physcia sp.; Heterodermia appendiculata, Pertusaria sp., Porella aff. elegantula and Frullania fugax.

Description

Corticolous on rawiri (Kunzea linearis). Growing admixed with Sticta babingtonii and Pseudocyphellaria carpoloma. Thallus loosely to tightly attached centrally, margins ± free. Lobes ± rounded and ragged-incised. Margins notched and incised, sinuous, phyllidiate. Upper surface bright-green or glaucous-green when moist, greyish yellow when dry, soredia, maculae, and pseudocyphellae absent. Phyllidia forming a dense crust somewhat obscuring thallus. Medulla yellow. Photobiont green. Lower surface pale yellowish to yellow-white at margins, darker yellow to yellow-brown centrally. Pseudocyphellae yellow, scattered, fleck-like, round to irregular, sunk in tomentum.

Description

Corticolous on mountain beech (Fuscospora cliffortioides). Thallus green above when wet, tomentose, sorediate, soredia yellow, granular, following laminal ridges, thallus margins and also in pustules; underside white, tomentose, pseudocyphellae conspicuous, copious, yellow; medulla yellow; apothecia not seen. Image taken in dry state. This species should be transferred to Crocodia as C. rubella (Hook.f. et Taylor) Trevis.
