Observation 100332: Peltigera extenuata (Vainio) Lojka
When: 2011-06-02
(35.6374° -83.3766° 1671m)
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: HABITAT massive outcrop at top of high-elevation ridge; SUBSTRATE ground; ASPECT sunny.

I thought this was P. extenuata (not reported for the park), but T. Goward was only willing to call if P. “extenuata”. These specimens have been sent off for more study. Certainly, this is a remarkable population, whatever the species is.
