TomV took this photo. Huge jowels! On cliff overlooking the ocean
produced a "defensive froth of mucus"
in a small, muddy pond
2nd picture is a close up a a dead one.
On monterey cypress, the only one I spotted. There was a surprising lack of lichens on these trees and in the area (apart from crustose lichens. Didn't see any niebla sp.). You know it's a slow day for lichens when I post pix of birds... ;)
TomV took this picture... because he is slow in posting....

This seems to be showing up all over our hillside now in shaded areas
I spotted this on my way to the California Academy of Sciences to meet with iNaturalist!
Flowering. Another location not far from last of my observations. White flagging. Is someone monitoring?
