Observation 21628: Letharia lupina Altermann, ined.
When: 2009-05-27
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I’m told it is the only species in high elevations. Letharia vulpina is more common in lower elevations. The color and isidia/soredia are subtly different. Susie Alterman has yet to officially publish the paper proving the distinction between the two species. It is entirely possible that only a few people in the world can actually tell these two species apart in the field!
