Bizarre. I thought it looked “off”. I have no idea what lichen substance would cause this reaction. Only things I know that turn directly red in K are pigments, yet this thing is white. I would love to know what this is.

I didn’t see any yellow color during the reaction.

Did it start out yellow, then turn slowly orange then red?
