When: 2008-10-11

Notes: Icamadophila ericetorum has many fanciful names including the Fairy Puke lichen(if you look very carefully you can see tiny little wine bottles). It prefers rotten logs and stumps and they aggressively overgrow mosses. You can often detect their relic fabric beneath the thallus
