BLS Number

I came to the same conclusion but couldnt find a number on the BLS ( British Lichen Society Site) even though it appears well annotated on NBN . Nice Lichen making a change from things Green :-)

Best Wishes

Fungus

You won't find it on the BLS site because it's a fungus. Striking colour.

Name chance

It's previous name was Pulcherricium caeruleum in most book's but the name has changed,it grow's favouring the underside of fallen or dying branches,tree's.
