Collection location: Planalto das Cezaredas, Portugal [Click for map]
The site of this observation is home to a wide variety of specimens of the species Arthonia cinnabarina in its various stages of development. That’s incredible! This is one of those species that does not even appear in the checklist of portuguese lichens. The Arthonia spp. mentioned there are: A. apatetica, A. pruinata, A. punctiformis, A. radiata, all with completely different features.

But thanks to a couple contacts, I’ve been able to indirectly add to the flora of several locations. Even if you aren’t interested in writing papers, you’re finding so many good things that I would expect anyone working on the flora of the Iberian Peninsula would be happy to receive material from you. I think it’s just a matter of finding the right person at the right time. I wish I had more time. I could put together a list of your observations which seem to warrant professional attention – there are many – then send that off to a couple of people. I think if people saw the quantity and quality of your work they would take you seriously. It seems to me that the problem (which is simultaneously an advantage!) is that there are too few lichenologists and no one has enough time to do everything they want to do.
Have you tried contacting, say A. Crespo? She might be a good place to start inquiry…
