• Fellhaneropsis vezdae (Coppins & P. James) Sérus. & Coppins 

There are no records for this species at present.

With a scatter of records in Ireland, this species is local on the shaded mossy bark of deciduous trees such as ash and sallow, as well as on the cones and needles of coniferous trees (larch especially). It is easily told through a hand lens by the characteristically rounded pink-brown pycnidia which frequently occur in little groups.

Key characteristics

  • Thallus grey to greenish, often without discs, but always supporting clusters of pink-brown pycnidia
  • Shaded bark of a range of trees in coppice and wet woodland, also on the old cones and twigs of coniferous trees growing near damp sites.
