Ramalina subfarinacea

This is a coastal species usually found on rock, and it is not confined to basic substrates, but is common on silaceous cliffs. It may be told from Ramalina farinacea in that it has a spreading holdfast usually giving it a more bushy appearance. Although usually saxicolous, it may also occur on trees close to the coast. This photograph was taken at Verclut Point in Jersey.
