Lecidella asema var. elaeochromoides (Nyl.) Nimis & Tretiach
Differs from the type by its brown-ochre or pancake colour, sometimes tinged with reddish or orange. This variety, much more thermophile and Mediterranean, grows in our region on more exposed and well-lit rocks than var. asema found in the xeric supralittoral zone. N.B. It may be possible to find Lecidella asema var. asema and Lecidella asema var. elaeochromoides in the same site and even on the same rock with different expositions. N.B. The sterile forms of Lecidella asema var. elaeochromoides may be distinguished from Pertusaria pluripuncta by its more brown-reddish pancake colour, a less bright orange reaction to C and the absence of prothallus. N.B. There is a form of Lecidella asema var. elaeochromoides forme lignicole coming on wood, see: Lecidella asema var. elaeochromoides form on wood.
