All those countless hours of searching…just kidding :-) I guess I will just assume they are all ochrochlora from now on.

You might have a very long search

James Lendemer is convinced that C. coniocraea doesn’t occur on the east coast. However, that said, he doesn’t have much experience with the western Great Lakes region. (I just had the opportunity to show him the difference between Rhizoplaca subdiscrepans and R. opiniconensis in Shenandoah National Park!) There is definitely more of a chance you will have western species in Wisconsin than in, say, Pennsylvania or New England. So it is possible. But it’s probably more likely that reports of C. coniocraea in the Great Lakes region are erroneous. (Heheh, “probably more probable”! :)

that’s basically what I went with, and probably also a subconscious desire to find C. coniocraea, since it seems I have only ever found C. ochrochlora, and it is starting to get annoying!

Are you questioning whether this is C. coniocraea instead of C. ochrochlora because of the divided squamules?
