Y'all, there are so many white lichens with black apothecia. I could have a blog solely dedicated to posting black-n-white lichens and I wouldn't run out of content until the day I die. I am not going to do that because it'd tire me out, it'd bore you, and this blog is already more responsibility than I can handle. What I am trying to say, really, is that more often than y'all would like, I gotta share lichens like P. rubefacta, and y'all gotta accept that they make up a huge part of the lichen pantheon. This crustose lichen has a warty, and smooth or fissured thallus of pale gray or yellow-green. Each wart can have 1-5 apothecial discs, which can be black, or gray from the presence of gray pruina. P. rubefacta can be found in the eastern side of North America, and the SW corner.
