Trunks, dead wood, &c., and passing into several degenerate states; New England. New York (a and 3), Halsey. Pennsylvania (B), Muhl. Ohio (8), Mr. Lea! Northward to Arctic America (a), Rich. — A very distinct species detected recently by Mr. Oakes (P. Tuckermani, Oakes ms.) may be referred to here. Resembling generally small greenish forms of P. parietina, this differs in the foliose-lobate margins of the apothecia, which are also fibrillose beneath, as in P. obscura, ß. It is common on trunks about Boston (Oakes, Tuckerman), and I have found it on rocks at the White Mountains. It was sent from Ohio by the late T. G. Lea, Esq. (Herb. Russell !), and I have North Carolina specimens from Mr. Curtis. (What is P. fibrosa, Fr., referred to in. cidentally, Lich. pp. 75, 97 ?)

Trunks, common (abundantly fertile in mountain forests), and also on rocks; New England. Pennsylvania, Muhl.! Rocky Mountains, Herb. Hook.! (Southward to Texas !) I have not seen the description of Fries, and am uncertain whether his Pyxine is founded on our Northern Lichen (which is probably what Acharius described), or on the West Indian and South American Lecidea sorediata of Eschweiler. The latter seems distinct, and has been separated as Circinaria Berteriana by Feé (Crypt. Exot. p. 128). Our Lichen appears to me a modification of Parmelia, near to Amphiloma, Fr. The apothecia have some of the features of those of Umbilicaria, and illustrate Fries's observation, that this genus is related to Parmelia.
