Missing you on the ZA site

thought I might try my luck here - but no idea with this one.

Thanks Marland

I should probably stick to UK lichens. After all, at least I can get my hands on them, and there is no end to what I have left to learn here.

Despite some overlap (eg Teloschistes flavicans, Pseudocyphellaria aurata and Lobaria pulmonaria), ZA's lichen flora is more alien and varied than I ever imagined.

It's really good to see progress finally being made in at least one group... and I will still check in from time to time!

Your input made all the difference

to the site - without you the number of contributors would never have multiplied as they did. I too am ready to stand back a bit, still have masses of pictures to load, and hope that the interest continues.
My plans to relocate to the UK need to be fast-tracked, so maybe I'll be able to add more pics to the UK site. You helped me when I was in London,at Christmastime (?) with a Lichen ID.
Till later then.
