British Soldiers

Cladonia cristatella


The main body is a thallus and can only be a thallus when a fungus and an algae have formed. The bright red color gives this lichen the name British Soldiers.


Deciduous woodland and forest


We found this in a ring of deer moss and other fungi and lichens.

Love the colors ... guessing it is a lichen of some sort but I am a complete novice when it comes to identification.
