Well the snow is melted and I was just wondering around checking out my morel patches.Sending them good thoughts to grow grow grow (Two Weeks 6 days until morel season)and looking for any other fleshy fungi that might be popping up. (No Luck) Well Iv noticed that all the lichens seem to like the snow melt because they are starting to fruit.(I guess that is what you call it) There pretty interesting. Well glad you like the lichen likenesses.

nice lichen series, Eddee.

I can’t tell if this has red dots at the ends of the stalks or not. You really need to look at it with a hand lens to be sure. There are 2-3 with brown dots, and about as many with red. The “catch-all” people seem to use when in doubt is C. coniocraea. Subtle details like the amount of cortex at the base of the stalks are important but subjective. Chemistry undoubtedly helps, too.
