Concentric Vinyl Leptogium pseudofurfuraceum

Unique in being our only bearded vinyl, this rare lichen growing on Garry oaks is distinct in having a ruffled margin and an underside covered in short hair-like scales. On the Gulf Islands, it is known only from one location on Pender and another on Salt Spring, along the shoreline at Burgoyne Bay. It closely resembles midnight vinyl (L. saturninum), a species common in the interior.
