Size of lichen ranges from 1 cm by 1 cm to 8 cm by 3 cm. The lichen grows horizontally rather than vertically. And is varying shades of light aqua green, the darker colors lay on top of the lighter colors. The lichen has grown over a tree trunk starting with a lot of lichen towards the bottom of the trunk growing upwards and thinning out about a meter up the trunk but continuing up the whole trunk. Towards the bottom of the trunk the lichen forms petal-like shapes and attaches to the textured bark of the tree, as it grows upward the lichen flattens out as the bark of the tree flattens out. The lichen is always shaped with rounded edges in blob shaped, rather than squares or rectangles.
