location : Lackawanna county, PA, a very rocky slope which is covered with different kinds of Lichen
|June 1. 2006
Visiting my favorite slope last weekend I found another interesting Lichen.
I believe this to be:
Cladonia cervicornis ssp verticillata
|And another closer look:|
|The cups are coming out from the center, not the margins. They are forming several tiers. squamules are just about nonexistent.
Consulting my beautiful Lichen Book
(Lichen of North America), I found a perfect picture of the same Lichen with an excellent description, providing a good match.
