When: 2012-01-14

No herbarium specimen

Notes: Is this a Peltigera sp.? It was growing from moss alongside the trail, I attempted to separate it from the substrate to show the underside, but I don’t believe I did that great of a job…

This will also be easy to find again, there are also extensive patches about 10 meters further down the patch which I haven’t looked closely at yet.

Looks identical to someting I collected in southern California which T. Goward was calling P. degenii. Check very closely for tomentum on the upper surface near the tips. P. praetextata always has tomentum at the tips at least, if not all over. P. degenii is dull but entirely hairless. Veins and rhizines are the same, and look exactly like what you’ve got.
