Platismatia wheeleri

Platismatia wheeleri

This is a newly described species (2011) which is pretty awesome because its not some super tiny obscure lichen — its about the size of your palm at full size, and even more cool, it is endemic to our region! Goes to show that even though our region is relatively overlooked, there’s little reason for such biological neglect. We’ve got gems everywhere!
