The only plant of this seen in this area of mangroves.
On mangrove branch.
Large patch (the size of my hand) on mangrove trunk. The liverwort at upper left is a species of Frullania.
I observed this crustose lichen growing on a Dogwood tree in my front yard. It was surrounded by foliose lichen, but was distinguishable and definitely different from the foliose. It was a darker shade of green and did not stick out as much from the tree. It has a rougher texture than the foliose lichen.
I found this foliose lichen growing all over a Dogwood tree in my front yard. It was mint green, brittle, and not very textured at all.
Very small cup lichen
1 meter + long strands of usnea
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 coastal scrub bush
here is a similar one:
for some reason, I never get bored seeing these !
and there are a lot of very robust ones right off the ocean here.
Pale green on one side, lighter on back. Delamination on back
soridia on the insides of the branches.
on branches of coastal scrub
On dead coastal scrub....
Pale green, ends of strands are curled, soredia balls too (?)
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.
