This species has the appearance of C. coniocraea (described elsewhere) which often grows with and among it. The generally longer stalks (podetia) have a corticate base (outer skin) that is only patchily floury-sorediate above. A key distinction is in the abruptly widening cups (never seen in C. coniocraea) covered within by a thick outer skin (cortex). Tree stumps and logs. Throughout Ireland.

Key characteristics

  • Podetia to 4cm; upper part with a scattering of floury soredia only
  • Podetia with broad, asymmetric, terminal cups lined with a skin of cortex.
