Technical errors, good pictures Vocabulary terms are sometimes wrong (see fruticose) and not well written (see squamulous) . It follows that individual descriptions are also erroneous, most commonly the fruticose/foliose type. I do not know names of species so I cannot comment on accuracy. I am enjoying the pictures and wish there were more notes.

Love it. Two things are holding me back from assigning this app five stars: 1) glossary is pretty small, 2) needs more in depth key our browse by image so toy don't have to hunt through 100 names to find your lichen. Otherwise it is a great app.
