Leptogium pulvinatum (Hoffm.) Otálora
Thallus gelatinous, papery when dry, lobes reddish to dark brown, irregularly wrinkled, lacking isidia, margin fimbriate with small, flattened (not cylindrical) projections. A newly recognised species, formerly regarded as a fimbriate variant of L. gelatinosum, and with distribution uncertain but probably locally frequent amongst mosses in calcareous situations.
