Observation 116027: Cladonia P. Browne
When: 2012-11-01
Collection location: Sintra, Portugal [Click for map]
Who: zaca
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This together with observation 116026 and observation 116028 all took place at remains of the same tree. Initially I thought that they were all of different species, but after some search I came to the conclusion that they may represent different stages of the development of the same species: Cladonia polydactyla. Is it possible?

I had to look at this closely again

But I still think this must be different than the other two. In addition to everything else, I don’t think this actually has red pycnidia… Yes, some look rather reddish, but even the reddest ones are still reddish-brown, not pure red. and many others are pure brown with no red. I hate these ambiguous cases! What do you think? Does it look red to you?
