exTRICATe PROJECT in Gorbeia Mountain and Irati Forest Travel

On 2 and 3 April 2022, the exTRICATe team visited the localities with Lethariella intricata citations in the Basque Country and Navarra

On Saturday 2 we have been in the Mount Gorbeia, the highest in Biscay and Alava, with a height o 1,481m. That weekend we had a great snowfall in the North of the Iberian Peninsula, but we remained firm and continued with the planned work. It was not possible to locate a single trace of the species we are trying to assess.

On Sunday we had the same cold winter conditions in the Irati Forest. In this locality of Irati no presence of the species was found.
