Foto och text (with help of Staffan Wall) Aimon Niklasson
We found Peltigera praetextata on rock on the way to the church
On an old pine close to the churchyard we found Parmelia saxatilis
Even if the name is saxatilis it often grows on trees in oceanic areas
We also found Tuckermannopsis chlorophylla on wood
A wild solitary bee on wooden pine ( in Sweden at least 1/3 of them are redlisted!)
Hypogymnia farinacea below on pine wood (above Hypogymnia physodes)
On wooden pine Alectoria sarmentosa intermixed with a darker Bryoria
Just pattern on old dead "silverpine" Pinus sylvestris
Lecanora with very black apothecia (turning brown?) and smooth thin apothecial margin and little developed thallus on wood
possibly Lecanora circumborealis since it is so black but very difficult to separate from L. pulicaris in the field
Some crustose lichens on stone need probably microscopic examination like this and the two below in order to know or even better "bar"-coding?
Crustose lichens on stone
Another crustose lichen
Staffan Wall at Egge chyrchyard looking for lichens
Many lichen marked tombstones at Egge
On stone Umbilicaria torrefacta and some Thepromela atra and Parmelia saxatilis
And the common Tephromela atra in the middle
Physconia distorta recognizable even without apothecia
Staffan Wall with a very old stone without inscription.
The very old stone at Egge church yard. Bryoria growing on top!
Time for dinner!
