Observation 12354: Cladonia macilenta Hoffm.
When: 2008-10-11
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Rather distinctive lichen, pale sea-green with white edges, crustose to minutely elevated, with 1-1.5 inch long grayish-green projectile extensions, having scurvy white scales and at least one bright red edged in black cup on it (see top-left of first photo). Growing on a well-rotted older Western hemlock stump, bark completely gone. Didn’t notice the bright red cup on the extension until after I got home and looked at my photos, Jason.
