Observation 887: Xanthoparmelia (Vain.) Hale

When: 2006-10-29

Collection location: Wolchulsan National Park, South Korea [Click for map]

Who: Nathan Wilson (nathan)

No specimen available

Growing on a boulder. I didn’t bring Brodo with me (wonder why? :-)) and I didn’t make a collection so I doubt I can even get to genus on this one. I saw many other lichens in the park including ones on trees as well.

I was relieved to see nice healthy lichens in this park. At previous park I had gone to close to Seoul, Gwanak-Gu, I had seen none.

Recognized by sight: This is the only genus with that general appearance that grows on rocks. But without a chemistry lab and a great deal of patience…
