I am delighted that Lichen are now a part of the identification process at Mushroom Observer. This one is recent but I have others from other areas of the country and other times. Look forward to sending them all.

Thank you so much. I actually sent this picture in error. Hit the wrong picture key. I see so much of this stuff and never knew what it was. Now I have another piece of nature for my Life list.

Conical shapes above moss are sporangium. Sphagnum has globulare sporangium.

This is a moss!
