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

1. Cladonia chlorophaea ?
2. Cladonia uncialis ?
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.
2. Xanthoria parientina
3. Psyscia aipolia
4. Parmelina pastillifera
This, Johnny and I believe is Peltigera scabrosella, growing as a terrestrial, Lasswade Scotland.
