Rhizocarpon sp.


Beautiful green and black lichen that is very plentiful


Pinkish rock (granite?) on Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park. It covered much of the rock on the mountain, so much that it almost looks like turf

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated Machi!
