On serpentinite near salt water.
Had posted on Northwest Lichenologists Forum for advice – "a bit out on limb in thinking Fuscopannaria group…F. thiersii, of which Jørgensen (2000) mentions “may be a specialist of heavy-metal and/or ultrabasic rocks”."
Suggestion for specimen sent to Matthias Shultz – waiting for DNA info. He did say “F. thiersii comes close, though I am not 100% safe (which is sort of impossible for the whole group). It seems that your record is pretty much to the north when compared to known records which mostly come from N California.)”
(Checking this observation I see only one of three references, and don’t see how to edit this. The others are Jørgensen et al. 2007 and McCune 2017.)
I like – “which is sort of impossible for the whole group”
