Suction Cup Lichen


I do not know the true name of this yellow lichen, but I dubbed it Suction Cup Lichen, because looks like little upside-down suction cups covering this entire branch.

I've not seen a lichen like the yellow one - your name suits it well.

Lichens and moss make such great macro subjects. I've been eyeing a dead branch in the park with this same sulphur yellow lichens growing on it. Will need to see if it is a collection of suction cups too! Aptly named.

I think that if the name isn't "suction cup," it should be re-named that because it's perfect! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful image. :)

I'm sure it has some long Latin scientific name, but Suction Cup sound good to me!

Gemma Wiseman said...

I've did not know that lichen could be this colour! Most unusual for me! And they do seem to parade a bunch of suction caps! Good one!
