Beware the sea!

Aren’t there like 10 times as many species of organisms under the sea as above?? And talk about colorful…

knowledge by osmosis…

eventually it trickles into an empty system.

my bare knowledge of lichens can’t hold a candle to your depth of knowledge, though, Jason. I KNEW you’d be able to slap some kinda name on this thing! ;)

speaking of depth, I even started learning my salt water tropical fish species. could be another taxo-rabbithole for me to fall into…I’ve always enjoyed getting myself into warm (hot) water, and flailing around in the deep end of things.

Just another opportunity to soak up new knowledge while treading water.

Thanks for your timely IDs.

Good on you for checking for elastic core!

We’re gonna make a lichenologist out of you yet. :) There are too many species of Cladina in the Hawaiian flora that I don’t want to guess beyond the broad group. (Cladina is no longer even valid, having been shown to be just one of many branches nestled within Cladonia.)

cool Jason. I knew that you’d come through for me!

This one superficially resembled an Usnea, but it didn’t have an elastic center.

Those crazy Hawaiian Cladina

They seem to love growing up in trees (or on fence posts?)
