Observation 166362: Rhizocarpon geographicum group
When: 2014-06-01
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

Crustose lichen on rock (granite?). Rock may been imported to site, as Larch Mountain is mostly basaltic andesite, a common rock in Oregon, where volcanoes are eequally common. Most of surface is yellow and greenish-yellow. Black spots scattered over surface. I should know this one: very showy for a lichen.
