    AW is right, it is just an intentional misspell of my name - it too is evolving. It started as lowercase correctly spelled and has changed a couple times since. THE MOTH IS SPREADING ITS WINGS!

    Ah, that wasn't me (JBL) commenting on the spelling. I would never comment about that for someone who screams "THE MOTH IS SPREADING ITS WINGS"--reminds me too much of a book and movie... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    I dont see why u go through such a big trouble. Lichen are sensetive to air polution blah blah...


    In my opinion the easiest way to get lichen in your outdoor landscape is to plant certain trees of wich's bark lichen seem expecialy fond of. Our native Yellowwood (Cladrastis kentukea, syn. C. lutea) bark in particular is smooth and very often coverd with attractive lichens, on both planted and wild specimens. Some lichen on that bark i have seen nowhere else. Also zone 7 south i frewuently see lots of lichens on sweetleaf trees also. The sprice/fir forests of the appalacians contain many rare lichen and moss species that grow only on those trees, along with endangerd insects like the spruce-fir moss spider (a close reltive of the tarantula) that live amoungstthe lichen. If u ever visit those areas leave them be but they are very interesting

    Only two populations left Info on this very rare creature

    I am not putting it outside. It is going in a terrarium. Also I try my best to put together correctly symbiotic organisms, since I am in NE and the ones i am looking for would mostly be S. American it presents a problem since many thing from down there are so common that many think nopthing of them and certainly there is no trade on them. I really do try my best to be correct for projects like this but sometimes I must settle for things that are similar but not geographically correct per say. I did however snag some local scale lichen from a maple up the street. Omaha seems to be lacking many biological natives within the city limits. The Grey tree frog for example. Anyway I am trying my best to put this together biologically, ecologically and geographically as correct as possible for a guy in NE.

    Thanks for the links guys,
    Joe
