Observation 215216: Lecanora Ach.

When: 2014-04-12

Collection location: Cordão dunar Consolação-Peniche, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

My first trip to this location was a bit disappointing as referred at observation 76181. Last year I went there again and the scenario was the same, in what is related with lichen at the dunes close to the sea: only a _Collema sp. and a Cladonia sp. was found there. Only one exception is to be mentioned, the subject of this observation, where a Lecanora grew on the top a block of ciment existing there (why?). No sample was collected but as far I could find candidates are L. actophila and L. helicopis, and possibly several others.
However, in the interface of the dunes with firm land (so to say), zone where an amount of shrubs of the genus Juniperus grows I found several lichens developing. Some are easily identified to genus (taken into account my previous observations at similar places arround): two other Lecanora spp., a Schismatomma, a weird Diploicia canescens as usual, a Buellia maybe, and some others also ressembling Buellia. At the time I collected some material that I intend to analyze in the sequel. For now I just create the corresponding observations uploading only the photos with the specimens
and I will update some later with the results of the microscopy.
