Golden shield lichen – Detail

During the weekend in the Ardennes I found on a nearby tree common lichen, Yellow Scales (Xanthoria parietina).
Xanthoria parietina is a foliose, or leafy, lichen. It has wide distribution, and many common names such as common orange lichen, yellow scale, maritime sunburst lichen and shore lichen.
