It’s reported from a broad range, but rarely

I look for it whenever I find a rich cyanobacterial habitat. And yes, I have also looked particularly in places where other people have found it. I’ll keep at it… it’ll show itself to me some day!

I was not joking:

You can’t find what doesn’t exist! (Lapalissade)
What were the expectations at the places where you looked for it? Someone had found it there before you?

Augh! Abundant?? Even more jealous!

Do you have any idea how long I’ve looked for this thing? :)

Congratulations on finding such a rich locality!

Why? There is no reason for it.

At this place it was not abundant and the specimens were scattered by the trees. The day after I found a place where it was really abundant, again mainly associated with Physconia. There I could also see a specimen of Lobaria amplissima, its commonly referred host, starting to be colonized. I’ll post some observations soon.

I’m so jealous!
