Response Statement - Wrinkled Shingle Lichen

This lichen colonizes mature deciduous trees, most often Red Maple, and is known from 56 occurrences in the Atlantic provinces. Surveys have failed to confirm the lichen is still present in Prince Edward Island, at one of two occurrences in Newfoundland, at two of four occurrences in New Brunswick, and at several of the 49 known occurrences in Nova Scotia. Threats to this species include continuing forest harvesting leading to the removal of host trees, and the impact of climate change, leading to a reduction in the amount of suitable moist climate.
