wanted to post another example of the wild and crazy Ramalina on this tree. The color is better than the other observation. And I took home this twig.
it almost looks as wild annd crazy as the R. fraxinae....
on trunk of tree
K+ yellow, KC+ had some hints of red, C-
bright green upper surface, brown lower surface, abundant brown apothecia.
pseudocyphallae (white cracks) on upper surface, some margins of lobes have soredia (?)
lots of this on this road
on Oak branch
not sure why I couldn't get a good photo of this...
some more wild and crazy Ramalina.
pale green (even though photos make it look grey - I had the incorrect white balance setting...)
Growing in yard in Novato, CA
Some sort of pigeon? Maybe some degree of albinism?
the photo is the location only - sunny patch; coyote ran off
