Observation 49896: Lichen P. Micheli

When: 2010-08-07

Collection location: Parque de Monsanto, Lisboa, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Recently I found Trentepholia coating a pine tree giving to it a bizarre looking (see MO4983). This time I found it again in several small spots on a Quercus tree. But, the novelty for me is that some of these spots where being invaded by a lichen, in such a way that they are mixed together. Of course, it is known that the great majority of lichen-forming fungi species are associated with green algae and Trentepholia is one of the these algae.


Spot of Trentopholia, isolated.
