Psoroma sphinctrinum var. microphyllizans Nyl., Syn. Meth. Lich. 2: 25 (1863); Psoroma microphyllizans (Nyl.) D.J.Galloway, New Zealand J. Bot. 21: 196 (1983). T: precise locality unknown, N.Z., D.D'Urville, ex Herb Buchinger; lecto: H-NYL 30782, fide D.J.Galloway, Fl. New Zealand Lichens 196 (1985).
  Similar to Pannaria sphinctrina but with marginal and laminal phyllidia. Phyllidia simple, delicately granular to lobulate at first, ±terete, globose, uniformly corticate, becoming flattened, ±dorsiventral with age, with a white, ecorticate lower surface, ±squamiform at maturity. CHEMISTRY: vicanicin and pannarin, or vicanicin alone.
  Much more widespread in the region than P. sphinctrinum, in Qld, N.S.W. and Tas., from 140–1300 m. Grows on forest trees, stumps, decaying vegetation in shaded, humid rainforest habitats , in wet sclerophyll forest and occasionally on granite boulders in sheltered streams.
