SYNOPSIS OF THE Sections.
Sect. I. The fibrillose hypothallus adnate to the foliaceous thallus,
which is discrete from the matrix. Subsect. I. IMBRICARIA, Fr. — Apothecia elevated, subpedicellate,
regular; disk very thin, naked, placed upon the gonimous layer. Thallus imbricate-foliaceous ; often black-dotted from abortion
of the apothecia. — Sp. 1-24. Subsect. II. Physcia, Fr.— Apothecia at first closed, at length de
hiscent. Disk thickish, waxy, placed upon the medullary layer.
Thallus normally foliaceous ; ascendant or stellate ; fibrillose on the under side. * Thallus normally ascendant, or loosely decumbent; apoth. some
what obliquely marginate. — Sp. 25. ** Thallus normally stellate-appressed ; apoth. plane. — Sp. 26
Sect. II. Thallus subfoliaceous, at length compacted into a conglom
erate, subgranulose crust; arising from a fibrillose (rarely ob
solete) hypothallus, which is adnate to the matrix. Subsect. III. Pyxine, Tuckerm. — Apothecia erumpent, at first
closed, palish ; becoming pateliæform, and, with the altered thalline margin, black; finally cephaloid, excluding the margin. Thallus subfoliaceous, imbricate-laciniate, at length crustaceous-concrete at the centre, on a black, fibrillose hypothal
lus. — Sp. 34. Subsect. IV. AMPHILOMA, Fr. — Apothecia erumpent, somewhat cor
onate with an accessory thalline margin. Disk waxy, thickish, naked. Thallus foliaceous, somewhat monophyllous, rounded, at length crustaceous-compact at the centre, placed on a spongy
pannose hypothallus. — Sp. 35 - 38. Subsect. V. Psorona, Fr. — Apothecia for the most part two-formed,
adnate or immersed; arising in the one case from the thallus, with a crenate-thalline margin ; and in the other from the hy. pothallus, with an entire proper margin. Disk waxy. Thallus of discrete, foliaceous squamules, arising from a common hy. pothallus ; often at the centre, or wholly, concrete in a subgran. ulose crust. — Sp. 39-41.
Sect. III. Thallus crustaceous, lobed at the circumference, or wholly
squamulose-effigurate. Hypothallus smooth, adnate to the ma
trix, often confused with the thallus. Subsect. VI. PLACODIUM, Fr. — Apothecia plano-scutelliform, elevat
ed, disk without proper margin, naked. Thallus as above.
(Thalline margin often colored like the disk.) — Sp. 42-47. Subsect. VII. Psora, Fr. — Apothecia innate, at first somewhat ur
ceolate, afterwards scutelliform. Disk with a proper margin (visible at least in the younger apothecia), normally at first
cæsious-pruinose. Thallus as above. — Sp. 48 - 50. Sect. IV. Thallus crustaceous, uniform. Circumference similar, or
the hypothallus sometimes fibrillose-radiant. Subsect. VIII. PATELLARIA, Fr. — Apothecia regular, scutelliform,
sessile, the thalline margin persistent. Lamina of the disk somewhat plane, without proper margin. Thallus crustaceous, adnate to an indeterminate, mostly black hypothallus. Disk not
cæsious-pruinose. — Sp. 51-66. Subsect. IX. URCEOLARIA, Fr. — Apothecia innate in the crust, or
immersed in protuberant warts. Lamina urceolate, or protuberant, verrucæform, blackish, normally cæsious-pruinose, marginate. Thallus crustaceous ; the whitish hypothallus confused with the thallus, or often fibrillose and radiant. — Sp. 67 - 70.
