I have puzzled over blue decomposing wood for years -- wondering if there was a natural cause or something like spraypaint by trail maintenance crews.
Blue stain fungi (http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/resources/health/field-guide/sds/bluestain.shtml) seems like a likely candidate. They are carried and facilitate bark beetle infestations and the Kenai Peninsula is plagued by spruce bark beetles.
A number of colonies of this lichen were seen, each almost covering the faces of large boulders near the coast.
Growing on canopy red maple.
Identification is a guess.
Many tree branches with lichen. approx. 3 inches long
cup shapes fungi shooting up from the ground
A number of these lichens were seen growing upon rocks atop the high cliffs.
Small grayish-brown discs growing in profusion on rotting wood.
Mold that engulfs and aborts the growth of boletes.
En Sierra del Águila, Ahualulco de Mercado, Jalisco.
Closed cells, no elastic-like core
on dead tree with several other types of lichen (has bluish powdery soralia)
On oak, pale green is correct color
there was a lot of this species on this tree. The last photo is another example, which was too high up to examine closely.
could it be Ramalina Leptocarpha??
