lichen

Description:

light green and white crustaceous lichen

Habitat:

various patches all over a wall in Quinta dos Vales de Cavalos natural park Sintra-Cascais

Notes:

lichens are symbiotic relationships between mycobiont and photobiont organisms. They are good indicators of environment quality! this means PNSC isn't very polluted since there are so many lichens, pretty cool
