Observation 11668: Candelariella Müll. Arg.
When: 2008-09-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Until I got back home, I didn’t notice that this tiny yellowish-green lichen is composed almost entirely of tiny cups, the edges of which are higher than the surrounding thallus (hope I got that right). How to describe how small this is … entire field of view is about 3-4 inches, so each cup is less than 1mm across. Got to get that disecting microscope, I guess.

Recognized by sight: Candelaria is the same color, but would be mostly lobes and few apothecia. Xanthoria would be oranger. Candelariella vitellina is common on rocks throughout the west; I’m not sure what would be on bark.
