Pixie Cup Lichen

Cladonia sp.


Not sure if these are British Soldier Lichens (Cladonia cristatella) or another similar looking species such as Cladonia floerkeana or Cladonia ravenelii. The red portions are the apothecia, which is the fruit body.


Pine flatwoods near several different Cladonia species.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
