Thallus cyanobacterial, lobate, lobe margins orbicular centrally appressed, apically ascending. When fresh dark charcoal black to reddish-brown, drying grey, mostly smooth but in places wrinkled toward lobe margins; margins sparsely phyllidiate; phyllidia terete, up to 0.6 mm long; lower surface dark brown to red-brown, matt, glabrous. Apothecia frequent reniform, up to 10 mm diameter, disc red-brown.

Corticolous near the base of a mahoe-wao (Melicytus lanceolatus). Thallus admixed with Thuidium laeviusculum. Voucher lodged in UNITEC (PdL 12877 & D.J. Blanchon) with duplicate sent to Prof. Bernard Goffinet (University of Connecticut) for DNA sequencing as part of worldwide study of Nephroma.

Seems to fit this species as it is described by Galloway (1985: Flora of New Zealand Lichens p. 315-316) but apothecia too big.

Description

Mostly occurring as solitary thalli in very dark sites in dense montane forest. Thallus cyanobacterial, 30-40 mm tall and often as wide, spreading rather than distinctly erect, lobes much entrangled, primary branch surfaces finely pubescent.

Sometimes seen associated with (but not emerging from) Sticta latifrons.

Previously referred to the genus "Dendriscocaulon" which is a cyanomorph state of lichens in the Lobariaceae - in the New Zealand case of those Sticta lichens with a green photobiont.

Sticta dendroides is thus far only known as a cyanomorph - we have yet to find the chloromorph.

See also http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/1448388 for an example of "Dendriscocaulon" associated with the thallus of Sticta latifrons

Corticolous on nikau (Rhopalostylis sapida). Fertile (white patches). This Docytonema corresponds to the one treated as D. sericeum by Galloway (2007) but which it transpires is probably a new species.

At this location locally common on a single nikau in dense taraire (Beilschmiedia tarairi) forest.

Rosette-forming, thallus diffuse, in places 30 mm diameter, rather dense, spreading, spongy, and cushion-like, though much cracked, dark malachite green when moist, brown-green when dry (as shown here), hymenia on the thallus undersides near the apices, whitish-cream when moist.
