I can’t say much about the Cladonia

I’d just call it C. chlorophaea group, I guess. What else can you say about sorediate cupped Cladonia??? [edit: C. fimbriata is definitely an option]

Maybe …

… Jason can help with Cladonia sp. Concerning Diploschistes it is known that D. muscorum parasites Cladonia spp.. However, I already found other Diplochistes sp. living with Cladonia nearby (see observation 76681, which I concluded to be D. diacapsis). Beyond that, though less probable, we have the ubiquitous D. scruposus, whose name is used whenever one wants to give a name to a specimen which we don´t know what it is. Summarizing, without microscopy you wil never know.

I don’t know

which Cladonia is… bah, they seem almost all the same to me :). Is there any other possibility than D. muscorum?
