硃砂橙衣 cinnabar orange lichen (caloplaca cinnabarina)

香港行山,碰到地衣的機會並不罕見。

我對這美艷的品種尤其鍾愛。因為總有遇到的機會,一直沒有追究和認識此品種,有時候更粗心妄亂將之稱為苔蘚。

終於拿起《香港地衣》一書,找到簡介。原來是地衣中少有的色彩品種,而牠可見於世界各地在香港有屬常見。

we are lucky. it is not rare for us to see lichen in the countryside.

i am particularly fond of this species because first of all the colour and secondly the structure/texture.

this orange lichen can be found worldwide and it is a species common in hong kong.

i don’t know much about lichen. so here referring to encyclopedia of life for more details of this species.
