  1. Much respect for identifying such cryptic lichen species! Posted 6 months ago
    1. This one has been puzzling me for a few years. I would toss it back and forth between Parmelia and Myelochroa. Posted 6 months ago

Myelochroa galbina is a foliose lichen in the Parmeliaceae with a whitish or pale gray thallus, a rugose center and yellowish medulla. The thallus rather narrow and tightly adnate. Soredia absent but apothecia (brown centers in gray cups) common. It can be found on trees.
