Foliose lichen, Xanthoria parietina,  on hawthorn

Foliose lichen, Xanthoria parietina, on hawthorn 

Foliose lichens are some of the largest and perhaps most complex lichens. The thallus generally forms flat, leaf-like lobes.

The first PiP shows a Crustose lichen, possibly Lecanora muralis, growing on a sandstone wall. The thallus forms a crust over the substrate and is firmly attached to it. Consequently, the lichen normally cannot be collected intact without collecting a portion of the substrate along with it.

The second PiP shows a Fruticose lichen, possibly Usnea subfloridana growing an a larch tree. The thallus is extended up into a tufted or pendant branched structure and is attached to the bark by a basal holdfast.

Crustose lichen on sandstone. Possibly Lecanora muralis

Fruticose lichen on Larch.  Usnea subfloridana.

Wonderful. I thought the group might like this poem by Sylvia Legris :

Genus II. Lichen.
On a scale of Lustrous to Sockeye,
Fishscale to Fire-Dot. Not Ichthyosis:
Lichen. Fruiting bodies in a calcareous
spot. Goldspeck. Blushing.

O the diffuse eruption of dazzling papulæ!

Usher the Wild Lichen. Usher spring
and the furfuraceous scurf recurs.
The Brain-Scaled (the hairline cracked).
The Blue-Blistered, the Earth-Wrinkled.

Neither Strophulus nor stoppable.
Like wildfire rash the crustose rush
of successive crops. Tundra Sulphur,
circumpolar, the snowy excoriations.

So squats the Dog Lichen, the Freckle Pelt.
Cobblestoned, chronic, the not contagious.

I didn't use the second PiP as the main photo as it was taken in March 2017. The other 2 photos were taken this morning, which is more in the spirit of the group I think. ;-)
