Although the very few remaining native stands are quite heavily protected, it is a very widely planted urban/roadside tree near these native groves, and as such permits aren’t an issue for a lot of them. I’ll assign collection numbers…. maybe.

please do grab specimens of your cypress’s flora. Looks really exotic, I’d love to see them all. If there’s no permit issues, I’ll send it all to NY when I’m done torturing them. :) (Be sure to assign collection numbers or I’ll have to claim credit for them myself. :)

I can collect it

next time I visit. The tree is planted at a place I work occasionally. It appeared to be the only patch of its kind on a tree dominated by Opegrapha and the orange cuppy ones (Candelariella or Caloplaca).

Didn’t know there were any Fissurina on west coast!

You don’t happen to have a specimen,do you? Oh, look at that, there are two known from coastal central CA: F. columbina and F. humilis. Need to see how much of exciple is darkened or carbonized, and how many cells in the spores.
