Observation 91244: Porpidia Körb.
When: 2012-03-29
Herbarium specimen reported
0 Sequences

This lichen seemed strange when collected. I knew it was a Porpidia, but was unable to further key it. Alan said it was an albino and left it at that.

on constantly wet (trickle) Si rock, in conifer forest, ca. 1,000m elevation

Yes, its in the WTU herbarium.

I have a Nikon Super CoolScan 5000 ED. (Amazing how much one would cost now.)

From a slide, no less!

(Nicely scanned, by the way.)

Very little was known of Porpidia in the northwest back then. Hell, even now, for that matter, I bet. Hope you hung onto this specimen, or left it in an herbarium somewhere?
