Hi Ken,

Obviously, I haven't actually seen it on C.sibirica, but from Wilson & Henderson, I think it would be more defined, and more chocolate-brown in colour. (With definite sori on the undersides of the leaves).

Might be worth sending the photo to Chris, and asking his opinions just in case?

Common sense is not so common.

Yes, I agree Mike, more dotted seems to be the case, in a vague circle, reminiscent of some Porpidia lichens - also a tad early....Still waiting for a reply from Chris on something else - looks like he's busy as usual.
Thanks for input, much appreciated.
