Pink Earth Lichen

Diabaeis baeomyces


Very pretty crustose lichen with a greenish-gray thallus and pale pink fruiting bodies. I'm not good with lichen ID's but a friend tells it me appears to be pink earth lichen or Diabaeis baeomyces.


Dry, steep roadside bank in full sun on Buffalo Cove Game Land about 2600' elevation. (pics are of a piece of it relocated to the shade in an attempt to show the pink apothecia better).
