Unidentified lichen

Unidentified lichen

Observation - Unidentified lichen. Description: 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.
