looks like a possibility!
Thanks for the tip how to find literature. I found this little goldmine too:
http://www.nhm.uio.no/lav/web/index.html Lots of pictures there.
I know that I can also ask Janolof Hermansson for advice and ID help, and I will eventually do that :-)
It surprises me regularly; it is extremely variable. But this would seem to stretch credulity…
I’ve asked Trevor Goward for literature suggestions. You could try asking Teuvo Ahti (Finnish lichenologist) about Cladonia. I don’t know him well enough to ask myself, but he’s been very generous with help in the past. I’m sure if you looked up his email and sent a nice note you would also be pleasantly rewarded for the effort.
your suggestions, Jason, and none seems to fit well (multiformis not reported here, I think). But I can’t find anything else that looks close either.. These are already rather dry, and have no sorediate tips. I agree that they are not yellowish-green. I should have mentioned that they are small, total length 3 cm, and each of these extremely branched “crowns” around 5 mm – not easy to get good pictures of..
Might help to see a photo when they dry out. But I’m interpreting this as brownish-green, not yellow-green (no usnic acid). Clearly corticate. In North America, I think the options are C. multiformis and … I’m not sure. I can’t tell if the branch tips are sorediate (C. scabriuscula) maybe because it’s wet. But might be other options in Scandanavia. (If it were pale yellow-green, then it might be a remarkably squamulose version of C. amaurocraea.)
