Corticolous on rawiritoa (Kunzea amathicola). Specimen with K+ yellow thallus. Exciple K+ red. Ascospores (45-)50 × 25 μm, with curved apices.

Matches this taxon best though the thallus should be K- and the ascospores are too small.

Specimen needs TLC and possibly DNA to confirm identification suggested here.

Description

Corticolous on rawiritoa (Kunzea amathicola). A bit of an unusual record - Marshall et al. (2019) stated that Thelotrema monosporum is not in New Zealand after all but this specimen keys out to Australian descriptions of this species - so it may be here after all.

Medulla yellow. Ascospores 50.0 × 12.5 μm.

Specimen needs TLC and DNA sequencing.
