Lichenicolous fungus.
Photographs on Candelariella vitellina and Calaplaca flavescens

Forms in apothecia of Caloplaca, Candelariella, Lecanora and Micarea species, discolouring and eventually destroying them. Owing to the broad host range it is possible a number of similar, but so far undescribed species are involved. BLS conservation evaluation: LC NS

Conidiophores usually in hymenium of host lichen. Conidia in chains, 0-1 septate when mature, pale brown, smooth-walled, 5-8(-9) x 4-6(-7) Ám. Microscope photograph below.
