This common bark lichen has a thin, grey, smooth to lumpy-warted thallus. The plentiful fruits are in the form of raised discs, small, variably pale to darker brown, surrounded by a moderately thick, grey, slightly wrinkled margin like a tyre wrapped around a wheel. Trees: all surfaces except the smallest twigs; also on wooden posts and fences.

Key characteristics

  • Grey, epiphytic crustose lichen with abundant brown discs
  • Discs with light to dark brown centres and conspicuous grey margins.
