I didn’t realize its rare status in your area — please let this beauty do its thing unmolested. :) We’ll just get someone from Florida to mutilate a thallus for the cause of science, instead.
(By the way, in general, I’ve found that groundskeepers either a) have no idea what a lichen is, or b) think you’re doing the tree a favor by removing a “parasite”. If you happen to find one who cares about lichens, please recommend them to MO, haha. :)
I didn’t make pictures of rhizines yet. The thalli grow on the parking lot trees. I am not sure if I can collect there…
So I hesitate to ask… but it would be very helpful to other users if you could include equally-excellent photos of the underside of these lichens. Especially Dirinaria since it unique among the Physciaceae in having a lower cortex but no rhizines(!) I’d love to see this feature documented on the site.
