Amazing thing. Found a festoon of it on a tree away from where the class had seen it. I think I saw something like it that was green at Pepperwood with Ken-ichi back last January...

Description from Wikipedia

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.
