Observation 102281: Ramalina menziesii Taylor

When: 2012-07-11

Collection location: Sodaville Cut Off Dr., Lebanon, Linn Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

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.


Very broad, but thin and ribbon-like near attachment to branch. Bottom is a piece of a cardboard coin holder, and measures approximately 1 inch wide, for size comparison.
Ends of strands becoming similar to fishnet stockings and nearly always finely divided.
Another view of base.
Another view of fish-net like ends of strands.
