Basidiomycota, Tremellales: fruitbodies small, convex, gelatinous, rather irregular in shape and constricted at the base, pink to dark brown, developing from the host thallus and thalline apothecial margins. A parasite on Physcia species, probably widespread but first described as a species in 1996 and infrequently recorded.
