Strap Lichen

Ramalina farinacea


This was a yellow-green fruticose lichen, hanging freely from a naked branch, amidst other lichens. Its thallus takes the form of large and flattened straps ending in pointy end, and carrying a number of apothecia (clearrly seen on pic N° 2).


During today's hike we took our lunch break in the snow and under few coniferous trees, and on lower naked branches I spotted several attractive lichens, growing one on top of another... This was on edges of coniferous (spruce and fir) forest, on some 1200m of altitude.
