CALS Conservation Committee Sponsorship:

Carlberg, T. and D. Toren. 2006. Sulcaria badia, sponsorship for the CALS Conservation Committee.  Bulletin of the California Lichen Society 13(2): 45-50.

Notes on Sponsorship: New locations have been found during recent surveys. The Committee wishes to be cautious and not approve a species that will turn out to be simply uncommon. Thus a decision was being deferred for several years for better biogeographic understanding.
