Observation 212211: Dirina ceratoniae (Ach.) Fr.
When: 2015-08-08
Collection location: Óbidos, Portugal [Click for map]
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was a pleasant surprise. A tree identified (by me, hope well) as Fraxinus angustifolia was the only of is type growing on the sides of a public monument (the others were Platanus, where I never found a lichen). It seemed ornamented with a rough painting. A closer look showed that, in fact, it was covered by a lichen with an unmistakable appearance – Dirina cerationae, which I’m used to find in shrubs closer to the coast.
