Powder-puff Deer Lichen

Cladina evansii


These are distinguishable by their growth habit: they look more like little "puffs" than mounds or scattered branches. That is one reason why it is important to photograph them a little further away so you can see their general shape as a whole.


Growing on the ground in an area with a lot of pine and oak and very little underbrush in the Withlacoochee State Forest Citrus Tract
