Parmelia sulcata Taylor;
The leaf like thalii crinkly edges and divided lobes of Foliose lichen seen at Kulgi and Anashi WLS, Karnatak, last week of April ’10.
This foliose lichen is Parmelia sp. It appears to be growing on bark. A closeup is not very clear to see the surface. Therefore I cannot see the type of structures on the surface.
Very grateful to you ma’am for the species ID. Posting one more pic where some bark is seen, hope it is of help. Thank you once again.
This appears to be Parmelia sulcata.
