Unknown Lichen
Description:

This is a lichen I found in the canopy of a Cumbrian Atlantic oakwood in Borrowdale. The photo shows what I assume is a fairly young organism at about 10-15mm thallus diameter. The substrate branch is about 15-18cm diameter and on the southern aspect of the canopy at about 12m above ground level.
