Thamnolia vermicularis var. subuliformis

Thamnolia vermicularis var. subuliformis

Observation - Thamnolia vermicularis var. subuliformis - UK and Ireland. Description: White, tubular, worm-like thalli on montane heath at 3500 feet. Used in traditional Chinese medicine, especially as 'snow tea'. I'll have to seek it out in Wing Yip; the few bits I collected probably won't make a decent brew.
