LOTS of this along the eastern edge of Point Reyes Seashore - near the water
I saw a few of these along the coast in trees. This one is one a branch of a tree.
Shrubby and dense, flat blades, same yellowish green on both sides. The distinctive aspect was the soredia clumps (soralia) at the tips of the blades. The Scharnoff book references the "torn-open lobe tips".
on trees next to small beach area next to Fruit Tree Beach
the trees ware filled with lots of lichen (Ramalina, Neibla, Usnea)
this one was on the beach in low tide, but many others were visible in the water near the shore
A large flock of these birds hanging out in White Gulch beach
low tide around 7:00am
Margins are shaggy and frayed... same color on upper and lower surfaces.
Reminds me of R. canariensis
the pix are blurry because the wind was blowing...
on wood fence post
lots of these blooming around here
more orange than the others
this more red version was more common than the orange version
Peach color, yellow when scraped
On wood panels
Passed pull trest, on wood bridge railing
On wood railing of foot bridge, crustose, Hard, dry, in sun
The ends of the blades were frayed with soredia
On bark, thick and crusty, crustose?
Splash zone rocks (on small rock next to coastal cliff, above high tide line), yellow finger like with apothecia
Tried keying using Brodo - and came to C. coralloides (then checked new McCune book, which seems to take it quickly to C. corraloides... vs. Xanthoria But this is my first time seeing this.
On trunk of fallen Bishop Pine, black on inside top of tube,
took sample home to do spot tests later
