    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Cool. Totally understandable. I'll work around your strange common names for plant life, and try to figureit out

    No skin off my nose. :-)

    The name is really unimportant as long as you recognize it and know the uses.

    IMHO this falls right in there in the don't give a crap category.

    The plants have been around for millions of years, humans have been using them for thousands of years, the classification system has only existed for 150 years and is only used by nerds to impress other nerds.

    When I see Latin terms in use I automatically skip them and place the user in the troll category, trying to make people stop questioning his expertise.

    We probably need to add a new category to the animal family; homo-sapiens-sapiens-nerd

    (I cleaned that one up)

    I tried to give K-rat some but it said to spread the love, I would give Crash some but someone needs to interpret the saying for me first. I'm sure it's a good one though.

    Is this the same type of lichen that grows in north western Montana? There is one there that is light green when fresh and chocolate brown later in the year. After wind it snow storms the deer search it out more than any other food source

    Usnea is common up to Alaska - You have a usnea called powdered beard lichen...to determine if it is a unseen, slowly pull it apart, check for the middle "string"

    its Spruce

    FYI - Spanish moss and Lace Lichen are not the same, Old Mans Beard and Usea are also not the same. It is better to use latin terminology when dealing with more that one area, they can be used worldwide, whereas local or common names can cause problems
