I have always been interested in lichens, but only recently started learning abuut them. My knowledge at this point (January 2018) is very sparse, but I'd like to present some of our lichens without much detail. Maybe I'll have time someday to go deeper into studying these amazing creatures, but for now, here are some basic identifications. Just for convenience, I've included slime molds with lichens, although they aren't lichens, but a species of plasmodial slime mold. Many Lichens do not have common names; I've listed common names where they exist, but otherwise, everything is in the Latin index. Lichen taxonomy is so complex and fluid that I am unable to pin down exact names. For more info:
