we looked at it in Roz Lowen’s asco class at the recent NAMA foray in PA. It was also sliming up the lawns on the Clarion University Campus.

check it out yourself, and better yet, post the micro-photos here!

I always wondered what this was. There is a nursery near by that has this over everything. Very hard to kill even with special chemicals. The sidewalks become unwalkable when it rains and it has spread to all the plants. Dont bring this one home. lol.

Same “algae” found in Collema and a bunch of other gelatinous lichens. Great photos.
