This lichenised species grows on mosses and liverworts on basic-barked trees. Each spherical disc (perithecium) is slightly immersed and surrounded by a thalline cuff consisting of soredia. The five- to seven-septate spores span 25-45ųm in length.

Key characteristics

  • Not associated with Normandina squamules
  • On basic bark, the thallus develops on bryophytes producing a sorediate cuff around the large, black perithecia.
