Anaptychia ciliaris (L.) Körb. ex A. Massal. subsp. ciliaris
Thallus foliose to shrubby, 5-10 cm diam., strap-shaped, straps elongate, to 2-5 cm long and 0,2-0,3 cm wide, apices potentially brown, fringed with black to brown cilia, 3 à 8 mm long, upper surface ± finely tomentose, pale grey when dry, green when moisted, lower surface ± depressed U-shaped, pale brownish white, or pale brown-ochre, without rhizines.

Ascospores brown, surface coarsely uneven,nbrown-black, wool ball-shaped or 2-peanuts pod-like, 1-septate, 40-45 x 18-24 µm according to literature, 32-45 x 17-23 according to our measures. Photobiont : Chlorococcales. C-, K-, KC-, Pd-. Uncommon in our prospection area; on ornmental aligned trees or fences, occasionally in sparse forests or at their fringe. N.B. Anaptychia ciliaris subsp. mamillata is grey-brown and grows on coastal rocks. N.B. Not to be confused with Physcia leptalea of which the lobes are less strap-shaped, is more fertile and K+ yellow, and with Physcia stellaris K-, but smaller and little ciliate. N.B. See also Anaptychia crinalis with narrower straps and found in high altitude valleys under oceanic influence.
