Flooding really bad?

According to the description, this is "on a sea defence boulder". According to the Location, this is between Rugby and Northampton.

Anyhow, Lecanora dispersa agg. on coastal rocks are tricky, perhaps especially so now the coastline has evidently moved. It might be true L. dispersa, but I am going with Thistle on this and agreeing to "agg.".

Force of habit!

Alan,

This was indeed taken near the coast on one of my travels, unfortunately I entered it as been from home!

Now amended.

Thanks.
