Dimelaena oreina


A display of three kinds of lichens on a rock; the focus is on the large pale central one, known as Dimelaena oreina. The small specks of bright green are the lichen Pleopsidium flavum (see spotting here:, while the golden lichen are yet to be identified. I'll shift my focus to them as well on my next hike. :)
