Location ST752648
Locality Parade Gardens balustrade
Parish Bath
Habitat Top of the Bath Stone balustrade
Notes A few old specimens noticed during a survey of the balustrade. It looks rather like one of the yellow or orange Caloplaca species but it rarely produces fruiting bodies and the surface is quite powdery. The primrose yellow lobes with a white area behind are useful distinguishing features. a Better specimen was photographed two days later by the railway station.
