exTRICATe visits Alcalá de los Gazules – Cádiz

The collaborator of the exTRICATe project, Sergio Prats Fons, belonging to the Mandrágora naturalist group of the Ronda region, in the province of Málaga, and  SEL member, visited the location “Alcalá de los Gazules, Sierra del Aljibe, Loma la Baña. Parque Natural de los Alcornocales-Cádiz” where there was a citation of Lethariella intricata by Dr. Jorge E. García Rowe, from 1985.

During the visit, it has been possible to locate populations in the surroundings of this location, being great news for our project. The thalli have been located in various sandstone blocks (Aljibe Unit; Cordillera Betica and Rif Units, Cretaceous – Lower Miocene Series). Very grateful to Sergio and Mandrágora for this significant collaboration!
