There is an interesting mix of younger lichen scattered among (or on top) of older ones, or the ones that are gone and only left “ghost rings” after their demise. In fact, those “ghost rings” attracted my attention a while ago, and I suspected them to be leftovers of L.thysanophora (see observations #71161 & 81373). I think this oservation provides strong evidence, if not proof, that those “ghost rings” were left by this particular species. Those of you who know more about this issue – feel free to tune in.
