  • Enterographa brezhonega Sparrius & Aptroot 

There are no records for this species at present.

Very tiny lichen always associated with the epiphyte Porina rosei on trees in old-established woodlands. In Killarney, County Kerry, it grows on oak. It is easily overlooked for bits of white shelly debris that has somehow become lodged in the thallus, but well-grown material shows this as a small bundle of white discs (lirellae) tightly knotted together. The spores are four- to six-septate.

Key characteristics

  • A tiny white knot of curved discs (lirellae) like a fragment of snail shell among the thallus of Porina rosei
  • Spores 15–20µm long, narrow, four- to six-septate with one of the middle cells enlarged.
