More Ulota on rock

Following Barry's recent post, I thought it was worth posting some photos of Ulota bruchii growing on a sandstone block on the northern part of Merthyr Common in March 2015. The rock was situated in an exposed moorland position and the Ulota came as quite a surprise. There were three cushions in total, two of which are visible within the large patch of black lichen in the photo below.

  1. Saxicolous bruchii clearly does not mind growing exposed on occasions, perhaps where the rock chemistry suits?
