A morphologically defined group of two non-closely related species: C. rei and C. subulata. Minor differences in their morphology and ecology do not represent reliable distinguishing characters and verification of the secondary metabolite content is needed, either by TLC or at least thallus spot reactions. In-field records and non-verified collections are included within the aggregate in this atlas.
