Unidentified lichen

Fruiting Lichen?

Growing in coniferous woodland in the Lake District. Minute so difficult to describe, this red growth appeared to be growing out of or on the lichen. I know next to nothing about lichen, and would be interested in anything anyone can tell me about this.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
