Description:

Growing on sandy substrate in a pine forest, two ‘reindeer lichens’ looking subtly different. This one had a slightly pinker look of the two.
Without close-up photos I know it is difficult to identify and I'm sorry none were taken, but perhaps someone can tell me which one it is?

Identifications

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

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

Species interactions

No interactions present.

Ah..

I just commented that C. ciliata was also in shot in the companion posting.

C. ciliata var. ciliata to be precise - a lot of this at Culbin.
