Acarospora elevata

Definition of the noun Acarospora elevata

What does Acarospora elevata mean as a name of something?

Acarospora elevata is a species of Acarospora.


Acarospora elevata is a shiny dark reddish brown to dark brown verrucose to aereolate crustose lichen that grows up to 3 cm wide on granite in central and southern California to Baja California, and high elevations in the Rocky Mountains. It is usually only found above 1,400 metres because it is eaten by red mites at lower elevations. In the Californias, it is mostly found at high elevations, but sometimes in coastal locations where it is less glossy. It grows in full sun, mostly on hard granite, but sometimes other igneous or carbonate rock, from 500 to 3,350 metres in elevation. It may start by growing on members of the Aspicilia genus, or other such pioneer species on hard rocks.
