Observation 102281: Ramalina menziesii Taylor
When: 2012-07-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Specimen is of multiple strands of pendant lichen, grayish-green as fresh, collected on an old-growth Oregon White oak (Quercus garryana). I would say the strands were from 20 to 40 inches in lenghth, nearly solid near attachment, thin, ribbon-like; but as they became smaller, breaking into almost fishnet stocking forms near ends.
