Observation 45562: Icmadophila ericetorum (L.) Zahlbr.

Just wanted to include this to show the relation between Icmadophila and Dibaeis, both growing on the same mountain in this case: the former boreal, the latter tropical.

[admin – Sat Aug 14 02:03:12 +0000 2010]: Changed location name from ‘Mt Leconte, Great Smoky Mountains NP, Tennessee, USA’ to ‘Mount Leconte, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee, USA’

faulty coordinates

I clicked on that New Mexico record, and it’s actually from Oregon … faulty coordinates. CNALH needs a better system for correcting locality data. A number of CNALH records from Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains NP have their red pins stuck into W TN somewhere … surely a problem with coordinates rather than with the records themselves. I sent an email to try to correct those ones, but the errors persist.

I believe this is supposed to be a boreal species, so you might well have it. I know it’s common in wet regions of BC, at least.

Pale green lichen with pale pink apothecia. Wish we had that species this far north.
