Collection location: Elk Fork Public Hunting Area, Vinton Co., Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dan Molter (shroomydan)

No specimen available

Notes:
I have named these ‘lichens’ rather than “Lichen sp.” because i think there are more than one kind on this branch. All photos are of the same fallen branch, about one inch in diameter.

Parmotrema et al.

How about: (1) Parmotrema with the upright lobes and dramatic whisker-like marginal setae, (2) Parmelia with the long strap-like lobes, abundant rhizines, and white maculae near the lobe tips, (3) i dunno with the brown apothecia, (4) another i dunno with the black apothecia and slender wiggly lobes, and (5) Flavoparmelia with the broad light green lobes and isidia-like pustules. Confidence levels here are hovering about the “pretty shaky” level except for Parmotrema, which is twice as good.
