Maritime Sunburst Lichen

Xanthoria sp.

Description:

Very common lichen, of yellow foliose thalle and bright orange apothecia. My guess is Xanthoria parietina.

Habitat:

Found on a dead and decaying branch discarded next to a pathway going to a mixed forest (oak, beech, spruce and fir) on slopes of Jura mountain range, close to a larger settlement in Geneva lake valley. Found together with Brown-eyed Rim lichen and two other Parmelia lichens.
