  1. Is this orange part on the inside of the lichen? Phaeophyscia rubropullchra has a reddish medulla but if this color is on the outside you are probably looking at some fungus that is attacking the lichen. Posted one month ago
    1. I don’t know. I think it was on the outside. I was wondering if it could be a fungus or dying lichen. Posted one month ago
