Description

Lace Lichen is vibrantly alive between rain showers. It does not harm the host tree, in fact it captures nutrients from the atmosphere that are then delivered to the tree's roots by rainfall. Ramalina menziesii occurs in places with clean air, where nitrogen oxides and ozone in smog are absent. Like many other lichens, it has an odd chemical pathway that absorbs sulphur, removing it from Earth's atmosphere.

Description from Wikipedia

Ascomycota is a Division/Phylum of the kingdom Fungi that, together with the Basidiomycota, form the subkingdom Dikarya. Its members are commonly known as the sac fungi. They are the largest phylum of Fungi, with over 64,000 species. The defining feature of this fungal group is the "ascus" (from Greek: ἀσκός (askos), meaning "sac" or "wineskin"), a microscopic sexual structure in which nonmotile spores, called ascospores, are formed. However, some species of the Ascomycota are asexual, meaning...
