Observation 11080: Peltigera membranacea (Ach.) Nyl.
When: 2008-09-08
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found these near a small creek while desperately looking for something fungal in this area that was very dry. Initially mistook them for some kind of fleshy fungus until I picked them up. They looked interesting but I don’t have any Lichen literature. Hopefully somebody can at least get them to genus.
