Previously reported seeing Degelia p. in Sir Robert Bond Park, Whitbourne, but that was the related and much more common Lobaria querzicans (according to Ian Houdie). The correct sighting was of multiple thalli on different trees, probably maple but species uncertain. Degelia found in among growths of both Lobaria querzicans and Lobaria plombaria, also one or two growths on isolated sections of tree. Formal count not done but at least half a dozen trees, some with multiple Degelia thalli.
