Found above 3200 Ft. elevation on Ponderosa and other mountain conifers.
Also commonly called Wolf lichen(because it was historically used in Europe as a poison to kill wolves) this beautiful fruticose lichen looks like a flourescent yellow-green usnea from a far distance. Used as a salve for bruising in some cultures as well.
Poisonous if eaten- however Blackfoot and other native American tribes historically concocted a medicinal tea from it.
