Ramalina
Ramalina
siliquosa, also known as sea ivory, is a tufted and branched lichen which is widely found on siliceous rocks and stone walls on coastlands round the British Isles, occasionally slightly inland. It grows well above the high-tide mark but is still very tolerant of salt spray. The branches are flattened and grey, and bear disc-like spore-producing bodies. It forms part of the diet of sheep on Shetland and on the coast of North Wales.[2] Taxonomy[edit] The species was originally described as Lichen
Lichen
siliquosus by the botanist William Hudson in 1762.[3] It was transferred to the genus Ramalina
Ramalina
by Annie Lorrain Smith
