Lichen

Notes:

The tiny green plants around the lichen look like Politrichum moss (sometimes called haircap moss).

The whitish thing in the centre is a lichen, probably of the genus Cladonia. Lichen are not technically a plant since they are composed of algae and fungi living in a symbiotic relationship.
