Collection location: Rice Lake, North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Daryl Thompson (woobs)

This specimen, found on untrampled rock, was in full glory when I found it – the thallus was a bright green as opposed to the customary blueish grey green of most specimens from this general area and the apothecia were exceptionally pink.

Thanks for joining MO, Daryl! This is such a hard lichen to photograph, you’ve done an amazing job. Is this specimen moist? I assume that’s how you’ve gotten such vivid color on it…

A lichen whose apothecia are tiny mushrooms!
