cryptolecanorine (adjective; synonym: cryptothalline) – immersed lecanorine; a lecanorine apothecium with a disk deeply recessed in the thallus surface and an indistinct thalline rim barely differentiated from the surrounding thallus as a low bulge; in the strict sense this term only applies to immersed lecanorine apothecia but these are frequently not reliably distinguished from immersed lecideine or immersed biatorine apothecia.
