Botany picture #92: Cladia retipora
We have a lichenologist visiting our institute this week, and so I thought I could upload a picture of the only Australian lichen whose name I know at the moment. And isn't it stunning? Cladia retipora (Cladoniaceae), Tasmania, 2012. Its common name is 'coral lichen'.
