Flavoplaca limonia, blastidia mounted in water. A chain of three blastidia can be seen, each attached to, and having budded from its neighbour. Simply by viewing an image such as this it is not easy to determine whether these are attached blastidia, or soredia that have become adjacent to one another during the mounting process.
