Description

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.

Description

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

Description

On dead coastal scrub....
Pale green, ends of strands are curled, soredia balls too (?)
3mm wide

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.
