taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Caldarvan, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

A lichen - Ramalina fraxinea
A lichen - Ramalina fraxinea
This species is found on nutrient-rich bark. The specimen shown here was fairly large, but did not have many apothecia (spore-producing discs). The few that were present were borne on short stalks, and were located on the surface of the lobes (especially near the edges).

A few apothecia are present on the lobe that is emerging to the left of centre. Another picture of that lobe, taken on a different date, shows these discs more clearly: NS4583 : Lichen detail - Ramalina fraxinea.
