Icmadophila ericetorum


First image is of Fairy Barf in a very damp area. The other two are in a dryer spot. "The only species found in North America, Icmadophila ericetorus, has a mint green crustose thallus that is dotted with bright pink apothecial disks, and is sometimes affectionately referred to as fairy puke"


Aka Peppermint Drop Lichen
