Amazing! Do any other colourations exist?  (reply...)

Neat. Last summer I hunted a bit for boreal felt lichen (Erioderma) but didn't find it, it's even rarer and locations are somewhat guarded. (reply...)
2 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Blue Felt Lichen (Degelia plumbea) posted on July 30, 2016:
Degelia plumbea is abundant in Bond Park. In a 2006 survey there I inventoried over 600 individuals on less than thirty trees of four species. This significant population is probably the largest single concentration of this species anywhere in North America. Otherwise it occurs quite sparingly, mostly on Yellow Birch, throughout NF.

Interesting about the Degelia nomenclature, I was not aware. However it still seems to be called D. plumbea in places. There is a lot of it on the trees in Sir Robert Bond Park in Whitbourne as many have noted.

Gull Poop Lichen, Xanthoria parietina. (reply...)

Try Candelaria concolor, or Candleflame Lichen. (reply...)
2 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Lichen posted on August 12, 2014:
The whitish crustose lichen appears to be Ochrolechia androgyna, or Bitter Wart. The hairy material is probably a non-lichenized fungus. (reply...)
2 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Lichen posted on August 14, 2014:
Your identification is correct. Another colloquial name for the species is the Gull Sh*t Lichen, because it grows on nitrogen-enriched surfaces including roofs of building in coastal areas. (reply...)
2 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Lichen posted on June 17, 2016:
Nephroma arcticum, Arctic Pelt Lichen. Locally abundant in alpine and heath in northern NF and LB. Occurs sparingly in appropriate heath habitat throughout NF. (reply...)
2 days ago Mac Pitcher made the following comment on the observation of Lichen posted on June 17, 2016:
This is a Peltigera, and most likely Peltigera apthosa. It is somewhat uncommon, but not rare. There are two other quite similar Peltigera species, but an examination of the underside of the thallus would be necessary to confirm to species. (reply...)
