Sticta ambavillaria
Look at those adorable, peachy, sunny apothecia on S. ambavillaria! Are they not the cutest thing you’ve seen today? Sad to see that they get all black and shriveled when this lichen is preserved (the last picture). So this lichen is probably best enjoyed in the wild! This wonderful little weirdo is found in the Neotropics and the African Paleotropics. It used to be thought that it’s range extended to Hawaii, but those specimens turned out to be the similar looking Sticta antoniana. It also has salmon-tinted apothecia on a dark blue-green-brown background. Very trendy, I know.

Powderpuff Lichen - April 2021 Salt Springs Observation Platform Trail is located in the Ocala National Forest. It is a short trail that takes you out to a platform overlooking the creek formed by Salt Springs as the water flows down toward Lake George. It was the dry season when I walked the trail and not much wildlife was present, but there was an abundance of Powderpuff Lichen, also called Deer Lichen or Deer Moss. The delicate balls of this pale green lichen form interesting images whether individually, in small groups, or in huge patches. MWM

Usnea amblyoclada
Rock beard lichen
Usneas are delighful. If you tug on their little branches (gently), you’ll find that they are springy! Due to the tightly compacted fungal-hyphae that makes up its main structure. And I feel like you can see how tightly wound U. amblyoclada is just but looking at it poking straight out from vertical rock surfaces. This shrubby-looking little lichen has divergent branches that grow up to 10 cm long in bushy bunches. The surface of the long, thread-like lobes are covered in small fibrils, and even smaller soredia. It can be found in southern North America and southern South America, where it typically grows on rock in canyons and shaded areas between 200 and 2530 m elevation. Hanging out there on cliffs--ready to spring!

Cresponea flava
Ever have those days when it’s not really cold, but you just can’t seem to warm up? Maybe you wore the wrong thing, and they’ve turned all the heaters off in your lab because it’s technically spring, and the wind chill sucks all the heat right out of you? That’s me today--but at least I can look at pictures of C. flava and warm the icy cold recesses of my heart.
