 Remarks:This new species features an unusual combination of characters: the inspersed hymenium, the labia becoming striate, and norstictic acid. The only other species with completely carbonized excipulum, striate labia, inspersed hymenium, and small, muriform ascospores is G. pseudoanaloga, but that species has distinctly striate labia lacking pruina, and the thallus is corticate. Since the striation in the new species is not very distinct, it could be mistaken for a species with entire labia. However, there is no species with muriform ascospores smaller than 40 µm known that would have a completely carbonized excipulum, inspersed hymenium, and norstictic acid.
