Observation 53627: Lichen P. Micheli

When: 2010-09-22

Collection location: Multnomah Falls, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Some lichens are large and snap-up your attention. Others have brilliant coloration, as this lime-green specimen found about 5 feet above the trail just above the lower falls bridge at Multnomah Falls. There is still extensive water droplets from the falls at this site, although somewhat protected from the Columbia River Gorge itself. Coloration almost looks luminescent, and might be bioluminescent. Mostly, just pretty to me.
