Observation 15455: Lichen P. Micheli
When: 2008-12-05
No herbarium specimen

Notes:
Location: 35°13’2.20"N 85°55’18.04"W, el. 544 m. Running Knob Hollow.

These white patches 15-20 cm across are quite common on the sides of sandstone boulders and rock faces along the western rim of the Cumberland Plateau in this area. Their sharp borders suggest an aggressive patch of whitewash dissolving its way through the neighbors.

Note added on 05 mar 2009: The image of Phlyctis ludoviciensis has been moved to its new home, Observation 19162. Thank you, Gary!
