Thank you

Ah, I noticed the little red tips, but hadn't picked up on the fact that squamosa is brown fruited.

Onwards....

Cheap intro to Cladonia

If you're looking to find your way around the commoner Cladonias, and don't want to spend money on Dobson's book, if I'm allowed to advertise..

might help.

And I've put together sets of photos of most British species at:

Good hunting,

Great!

Many thanks Brian, that looks really helpful - I love Cladonia's but they do my head in trying to ID them!

Thanks!

Thanks, Jenny,

the key seems to work in the English lowlands where we're lacking about half the British Cladonias.

Really like your website, btw - I use irishlichens all the time.
