Observation 12189: Lichen P. Micheli

When: 2008-10-07

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Trying to photograph a tiny brown lichen (but could be Stereum or similar tiny shelf fungus) in crack of bark near center of photo. Interior is light brown with some white from the reverse. Or is it the other way around? This tiny thing was about 1/4 inch long, growing on the underside of a Quercus palustra branch, and very nearly obscurred by the crack itself. Also, it is surrounded by other lichens, including at least Parmelia sulcata and Candelaria, plus a larger brownish thing to the right of center. I am beginning to appreciate the difficulty in photographing these: too tiny for a lot of people to even see.
