    Lichens (previously A quick test)

    On one of my recent perambulations I came across these two little beauties.

    Anyone care to ID?





    Clue :- They are the same genus

    Good try Johnny and very quick.
    I'm tending more to Cladonia pyxidata ( pixie cups) ( although the complex with C. monomorpha and C pocillum is a little confusing. Then add to that C. chlorophaea and it's head scratching time) and Cladonia rangiferina (reindeer moss)

    I'm far from an expert in Lichens. At least it looks like I got the genus right ! Pretty much 100% sure #2 isn't C.uncialis, just somewhat similar. C.uncialis seems to form tiny little cups at the apex of the "branches" where this one doesn't.

    As Johnny did so well, here's a few more to play with.

    Lichens

    This, Johnny and I believe is Peltigera scabrosella, growing as a terrestrial, Lasswade Scotland.
