Thanks to Jim Croft for the notice. It's an attractive and very readable website! Bouquets to the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens, who funded it, and to the Australian National Botanic Gardens, which hosts it. It's great to have sites like this which are aimed at students and naturalists, but with links and pointers to more sophisticated resources.
It's also nice to be reminded that species fuzziness takes on another layer of complexity in the lichen world. The classification page has an excellent perspective on this.
