Observation 82313: Lichen P. Micheli
When: 2011-11-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was a green lichen growing on living wood (branches of shrubs). Again, I’ve magnified the images on the computer to show in better detail what I assume are some kind of spore sac? Looks a bit like a cup fungus.

Australia has diverse Parmeliaceae

My northern experience may not apply very well. But this looks just like a fertile Flavoparmelia to me. F. rutidota is supposed to occur in Australasia.

Have you seen the Flora of Australia? Some treatments are on-line. Elix has done some amazing work down your way. I can dig up a link if google doesn’t show it.
