Description

looks like a Ramalina to me, but most of the strands have shrubby edges - without the 'pop beads' (soralia) typical of R. farinacea. However, some of the strands seem to have some soralia beads...

pale green upper surface, lower surface is just slightly lighter

cortex: C-, K-, CK+ yellow

On dead coastal scrub....
Pale green, ends of strands are curled, soredia balls too (?)
3mm wide

occasional apotecia mostly on strands, but lots of little 'extensions' coming off sides of strands... (??)

Looks like R. roesleri, but Scharnoff book says that roesleri don't have apothecia.

On chert rock (as far as I know)
Gray upper surface, ends of lobes are bumpy (soredia?)

Tight against rock, thin, darker gray lower surface (not black), absence of apothecia

K+ yellow, C-, KC- (or faint yellow)

P. tribacia?

this is barely a park, but instead, an odd enclave of houses on a private gated road on a mound of rock - with a very short dirt path - - but the SF Park and Rec signs are there (!)
