I just can’t keep up. Already I can’t get things done fast enough, but if I tried to photograph every specimen I looked at… ack! :(

OK, Thanks.

I hope you will remember; It will be good to see the spores of similar type.

I don’t have any micro photos

But I kept this as a reference specimen, so when I get back home in two weeks — if I still remember! — I can pull it out and take photos. Sorry!

Do you have photos of the spores to compare with those of my observation 237422?

Large quantities of this lichen (lichens?) are scattered about in the open in full sun.
