Growing on a stick. Green on top, white and brown on bottom. Broad lobes
Never seen it with apothecia before.
This foliose lichen was seen on a wooden fence railing.
Found in an oak woodland growing on the northwest side of a coast live oak with other lichen.
On moss, on oak tree (just above the main tree line for the coast redwoods) papery feel, thin and dry (although it was almost above my reach coming down the Mt. Ellen Summit trail)
could this be lobaria pulmonaria or lettice lichen (?) If so, it's my first time seeing this.
The photo with the light green color is accurate
Lobaria is a genus of lichens commonly known as "lungwort" or "lung moss" as their physical shape somewhat resembles a lung. Lobaria species are unusual in that they have a three-part symbiosis, containing a fungus, an alga and a cyanobacterium, the presence of the cyanobacterium allowing nitrogen fixation.
