  1. That's awesome! The zoomed in details are really amazing. I've never seen a lichen like this before. Posted 2 months ago
    1. Neither did I, or perhaps I didn't pay enough attention to such details :) Posted 2 months ago
  2. Great photo, Ferdy! If it was in my backyard it might be Cladonia ochrochlora. Quite sure it is a Cladonia of some kind. How about C. coniocraea or C. furfuracea. C. coniocraea has dissected squamules on the podetia and has, most frequently, only pointed podetia. Posted 2 months ago
    1. Thanks, Gary! Having the genus is already very valuable. I´m afraid I know too little about lichens to judge the species you suggest as a match. What do you think? Posted 2 months ago
      1. Hey Ferdy, don’t really know how my very limited knowledge of lichens, particularly Cladonia, translates to Colombia. I guess I’m afraid to “stick my neck out”. I get way too confused trying to ID the ones I can hold in my hand! LOL Posted 2 months ago
