This was perhaps the most intriguing of the lichens I observed this time. It has the shape including a proeminent prothallus and lived among Rhizocarpon spp. in a boulder. However, the thallus itself consists of very small green squamules with whitish margins. So, is it a Rhizocarpon? I have no alternative for the classification.

I have observed before (obsevation 78970) something that I believed (and still do) to be R. bolanderi); This one looks a bit different, namely the colour of squamules, but this could be a consequence of the rainfall. I think that this is no longer a mistery and, probably, it is R. bolanderi again. Thanks, Jason, for the help.
