Description

ID based up on the number of following morphological characters of the Cumberland rock-shield lichen (Xanthoparmelia cumberlandia). General appearance, microhabitat of the rock surface, abundant isidia, tan downside, as well asl as K+ (green), C-, KC - cortex, K+ yellow turning orangish pink, C -, and KC -medulla. Ineterestingly, rhizines were irregularly distributed to me, and they actially reminded me cilia.

Description

Odd lichen probably belonging to the greenshield lichens (Flavoparmelia). It shows many morphological characters of Flavoparmelia caperata (presence of large irregular patches of granular soredia coming out of pustules, dark brown down-side with abundant tan rhisoides). But spot tests of medulla (K-, C-, KC- ) are not characteristic of this species. References:

Description

Diagnosis of the Bushy beard lichen (Usnera strigosa) is based on the presence of he central supportive cord, thalus growing in bushy tufts from a single point, not blackened base, presence of apothecia, dense reddish medulla. Spor tests of the cortex (KC+ yellow) suggested presence of usnic acid, medulla in this specimen was K-, C- KC-, as well as geographic location (Cape Code, NE US).

Diagnosis of the Rough speckled shield lichen (Punctelia rudecta) is based on the presence of he blish gray thalus with abundant insidia and white pseudocyphellae, absence of soralia at lobe margins, pale tan lower surface with pale rhizines as well as growth on the bark of a birch and geographical location (NE US), Spot tests of medulla (k- KC+ red, C+ red) suggest presence of lecanoric acid.

Description

Rock greenshield lichen is a medium sized light yellow-green foliose lichen with rounded lobes 2-8 mm wide, forming about 20 cm across patches. Upper surface of the thalus is often wrinkled in its oldest central part. Lower surface smooth, black, except for brown margins. Rhisines are black, conical and unbranched. Photobiont is green algae Trebouxia. Upper surface of the thalus has globose pustule like outgrowths, some of them brake down into granule-sized fragments (schizidia). Spot tests of medulla (K-, C-, KC+ pink) suggested presence protocetraric acid, while those on cortex (K+ yellow, C -, KC + dirty orange) suggested precense of Usnic Acid, which are characteristic of this species.
