In conifer woodland on sandy soil
Identifications Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be. Notes: Tapering, densely sorediate cups, patchily corticate, commonly (as here) proliferating from the margins. Forms a complex of morphologically ill-defined species (better as subspecies in my view) in which chemical tests, UV light reactions and, ideally, thin-layer chromatography, are important for precise identification. [Rather coarsely sorediate, so this might be C. merochlorophaea rather than C. chlorophaea in the strict sense, but without aforesaid tests, this is speculation.] Very nice photographs, though the watermark bars are a bit distracting.
