Notes: Locality: 29°15’7.40"N, 103°17’50.60"W, el. 2050 m.
Substrate and habitat: Growing just barely within camera reach near the base of an enormous, shear rock spire several hundred feet high, part of the scenic Pinnacles formation overlooking The Basin of the Chisos Mountains. This is the only tuft of this species that I found in several days of hiking trails, but Wetmore (1976) records it from higher elevations on the Lost Mine Trail, the Casa Grande formation, and in the vicinity of Emory Peak.
Common name: powdered orange bush lichen
