Upper surface of fresh thallus bright green, brown-grey when dry, with adpressed, convex, laminar cephalodia which cannot readily be detached; lower surface with a network of veins which are dark towards the bases of the lobes (older parts of thallus). Very local in mossy, calcareous, coastal and upland habitats in the north and west.
