This lichen may be related to the just posted lichen. They were both found near each other. But the first lichen was found on the ground, while this lichen was growing on a living Noble fir. The older thicker stems of this lichen are reddish-brown, sometimes with black on them; while the younger stems are gray to white, with all tips being white.
