Cladonia incrassata Flörke
A tiny lichen with grey-green, much incised basal squamules, to 4mm, granular-sorediate on margins and beneath, podetia minute, cylindrical, to 5mm but often hardly formed, arising from the squamule surfaces; apothecia red, button-like, on the tips of the podetia or subsessile on the squamule surfaces. On peat, especially cut surfaces, and on rotting wood in old woodland, widespread but very local.
