Hi Jason. I’m always glad to run into another lichen fan and I’m glad Damon is being converted. Absolutely no offense taken. I confess to not putting it under a scope. I remember Dick saying it was actually a very common lichen in the northeast and Damon’s pic matches my memory pretty well. Hopefully more feedback will come in on it and I will happily be corrected if need be.
I just feel some compelled to question IDs of obscure species given without any information. I trust Dick Harris implicitly, of course, because he knows all the possible look-alikes like the back of his hand. And if you feel confident IDing it by sight, then I’m good with that!
Hey Damon! Thanks for putting Cranberry Lake on the map or at least on MushroomObserver! I learned about this species while tagging along with Dick Harris on a bioblitz a few years ago. If there’s any mistake with the ID, it’s because I’m a bad student or have a lousy memory.
I cited a naturalist I walk with. He told me the book Lichens of NE I think… Thanks again for your incredible site!
Not sure I would’ve thought of it, but now that you mention it… Where did you come up with the name?
