Description

Undescribed species, previously assumed to be a new species of Thelotrema but which, following DNA sequencing falls squarely in Ocellularia. Has affinities with O. bicuspidata but has different spore sizes and the tails are not septate. There are also other differences. This specimen collected from kauri (Agathis australis). Identified by A. Marshall from specimen collected from lichen plots in April 2018.

This is one of the largest and healthiest populations of autetaranga I have seen. All size classes were present. There was absolutely no sign of rabbits, and I think this is significant. Most other populations are in steady-to-severe decline and rabbits are usually abundant. Coprosma acerosa is also doing very well in this dune.

Interesting lichen growing foliicolously on an Elaeagnus x reflexa leaf. Not seen something with such large apothecia growing foliicolously before, so warrants further inspection. Will cross section when I next get in to Unitec!

Spores up to 3 septate, 12.5-14 x 3 microns. Apothecia mainly hypophyllous (on leaf edge), but also epihpyllous. Thallus lacking marginal prothallus. Hymenium approx. 50 microns.

Note that Flora spelling is fallaciosum not fallociosum.
