But more interesting ...

I have added agreement to Melanelixia glabratula, though ideally I would give it a chemical test.

However, despite lack of comment, the abundant discs all over the surface might have caused some thought. They are a parasitic fungus, probably Abrothallus bertianus.

Aha

The fungus certainly gave me pause for thought.
