Pertusaria aspergilla

Pertusaria aspergilla

A pale greyish to buffish cructose lichen, which is thin to cracked aerolate. Apothecia absent.

Found on silica-rich rock, especially outcrops that get wet and dry out fairly quickly. Locally common and widespread in the north and west.

    • Thank you, Judith 🙂 Some of the powdery, cracked cructose ones can be somewhat dull, but the foliose ones are like tiny plants. I guess there is beauty in most things if we look for it 🙂
