I was excited to find Thamnolia vermicularis, an arctic-subarctic lichen, growing on a sunny boulder covered in a variety of lichens and mosses at about 6000' on the slopes of Mt. Townsend. I've only seen this once before, on Mt. Zion.
The Peltigera neopolydactyla or Frog Pelt along the lower portion of the Mt. Townsend trail was completely gray.
This was the only patch of lichen that looked like this along the trail to Mt. Townsend. Could it be Cladonia squamosa or Dragon Cladonia? It was a 6" diameter patch, growing at about 6000' on a sunny exposure among many other mosses and lichens.
