Greensheild

Flavoparmelia caperata

Description:

Habitat:

It lives in a wet forest with a pond next to it and a lot of trees.

Notes:

I found Three different kinds of lichen. I found all three on trees and have six pictures. They were in the woods it was pretty cold and it was sunny with view clouds. I think the lichen on the left is paramelia lichen. It is also green and a little bushy. They both live in a forest and can live in cold climate.
