Thank you very much Artanda. I joined Lichens mission.
By the way, have a look at the lichens mission:http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8624...
I think that the last photo belongs to Cladonia fimbriata or similar
Thank you very much Linda. I looked both pictures and they looked alike.j.mironczyk's 4th picture made me think that they were cup lichen (my 6th picture), but they also look like Cladonia cristatella, British soldier lichen. So, I was wondering. Thank you very much for your comment.
The photo here is Cladonia cristatella, British soldier lichen. I don't think it's the same as cup lichen, which I believe is Cladonia fimbriata. We have a lot of both in our yard. I think I can get pics of them together along with some others in the same genus, if you like.
Thank you very much J. I think it is called Cup Lichen. Is this same as British Soldier Lichen? I saw j.mironczyk's spotting: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/104....). By the way, I added another picture. I thought this was different fungi, but looking at his spotting (see his spotting), I realized that they are the same fungi (first time I attached his spotting did not work sorry).
Argy, I added another picture. I think J.'s suggestion is more like it.
Thank you very much Argy. They were growing on top of dead tree stump and they were very tiny (2~ 5 mm)
Or the pink could be a fungi.... Marchandiomyces corallinus for example.... which attackes lichens... http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/lichen...
Nice spot! Please confirm the ID. I've not seen one where the fruiting bodies are so small, notice the largeness in this spotting:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/138...
What size is this.. what is it on?
