Wolf Lichen - Westside Road
(Letharia vulpina)

This mossy green wolf lichen growing on a weathered gray tree stump near the Westside Road caught my eye.
 These small shrub shaped lichens, which form tufts on dead conifers in the open areas, share an interesting history. 
 Indigenous peoples used the mossy colored lichen as dye for clothing and decorative items as well as body paint.
 In northern Europe wolf lichen was formerly used to make wolf poison, hence the name wolf lichen.
It's Latin genus name , letharia vulpina, indicates it is poisonous (lethal) containing vulpinic acid.
 Taken near Westside Road NW of Fairmont, British Columbia, Canada
