This starts to become monotonous: Almost every time I see a Lecanora that consider interesting or showy, the chemical reactions are also interesting and showy!
Just look at the profusion of Lecanora with similar and non-standard chemical reactions for the genus, (I believe) not all of the same species, since there are morphological differences among them:
|User’s votes are weighted by their contribution to the site (log10 contribution). In addition, the user who created the observation gets an extra vote.|
|I’d Call It That||3.0||0.00||0|
sum(score * weight) /
(total weight + 1)
Still, for folks without, like me, you’ve recorded everything very nicely on MO. For that I am very thankful.
my possibilities and capabilities.
I don´t have really good notes about these observations; most of the details are from memory, which is still working.
That with that many species, there are bound to be many in any given region with weird chemistry, morphology, etc. These checklists just don’t suffice for genera like Lecanora. I don’t see how you’re going to make progress without access to experts, herbaria and/or much more extensive literature (and good equipment).
I wonder if you could get away with creating temporary names for these things, at least to help organize your growing list. It sounds like you’re keeping notes about them yourself, too, which is great.
Sorry to be negative, but this just seems to be the reality.
