I probably miss a bunch of neat stuff. Thanks for the comments. Yesterday I uploaded specific photos based on some of the other lichens in the image, if close looks might help identify them:


The pale greenish one above the Caloplaca in the second photo

The bright white with shiny brown-black apothecia below it could be Lecanora pseudistera. Not sure what the darker green one is — a contorted form of Thelomma mammosum? But I think you can clearly see that the pale greenish one is mazaediate.

It was quite sizeable

is the Thelomma that greenish one, or the white one?

That would be my first guess

I’m using the Thelomma above it to get a sense of scale. It looks way too big to be Candelariella. I don’t recognize it either.

There wasn’t much fire on this particular part of the range

so there is hope yet!

Is this a Caloplaca do you think? I can’t find anything remotely like it…

Wow, you are finding some great specimens

Here I thought the Santa Monica Mountains had all burned to the ground. :(
