Observation 54130: Squamarina cartilaginea (With.) P. James
When: 2010-08-28
Collection location: Sintra, Portugal [Click for map]
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing up on a fence surrounding a property in the south facing slope. I didn’t know this species and I was amazed at the length of the thallus, which occupied a considerable area of the wall, but this is not visible in photographs. I had some difficulty in the identification, but there ended up finding some clues. Later, searching the database I noticed there was an observation with this species – MO20448 – from two and a half years ago.
