Collection location: near Cape Lookout, Tillamook Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]
Growing on sandy cut of recently reclaimed sanddune area, just south of Cape Lookout. This Cladonia is both rathr striking in appearance, and rather rare. I went back to attempt finding a specimen for a collection, but could only find my original patch plus one other small grouping. I have collected this this time, and hope to find an herbarium interested in my collection.

Took a large portion (I’m afraid) of this lichen, as I had already pulled it from the sand-bank of the road-cut, and it would not stay put when I tried to put it back. There was another smaller fruit-body nearby, but it wasn’t as candelabra-like … yet. I hope I didn’t destroy it!
