I can’t pinpoint the location on the map, so I created a new one. Technically, such location doesn’t exist. The location in existence is Mazomanie Oak Barrens State Natural Area, located within the expansive Lower Wisconsin State Riverway (LWSR). Maps of the latter, depending on where you look, show the location of my collection (near Mazomanie Oak Barrens SNA) either whithin Black Hawk Unit of LWSR, or Mazomanie Unit of LWSR. On the other hand, Black Hawk Unit is generally considered to be the hills across the road, while Mazomanie Unit is further west. Locals call surrounding area Mazomanie Barrens, hence the name of my location. I know I confused the heck out of those who aren’t familiar with the area, but decided to go to this trouble since I have many other observations, including tons of Cladonia species, collected at the same location.
