Or “hot off the press”. Maybe Elix will sign it for you, too!


Hi Jason I ordered the book you mentioned, but have to wait as although they said it was available (and took my money) it is being reprinted .

I’ll have to get my revenge by posting lots of cool parasitic Rhizocarpon species from the Nevada mountains…

Jason: Yes, only jealous can lead you to say such nonsense.

Is there anything wrong with the specimens I have photographed?
Did I ever try to modify their appearance by any mean?
But, the truth is that after sometime I had to refrain myself of posting more Sticta specimens, because that would not seem real, such is the abundance at some of the places I visited.

Yes, Sticta is pretty uncommon most places in the world. (Ignore all the specimens zaca posts, he’s just trying to make us feel jealous. ;)
