Chaenotheca furfuracea (L.) Tibell


A minute 'pin' lichen with a yellow-green, leprose thallus and slender, stalked, green-pruinose apothecia, about 2–2.5mm in height. Widespread but more common in the upland areas of the north and west, on tree stumps and roots (especially, as here, on bases of uprooted trees), or in crevices of siliceous rocks.
