It’s such a hard genus! I like to wait until I have some confidence before posting things, but… well, the result would be that I would never post an Usnea! Ugh.

Thanks

… for posting all of these great Usnea observations! In a strange coincidence, I was just this morning reading Halonen et al.’s 1998 paper on British Columbia Usnea species.
