Coral Crackers Fuscopannaria coralloidea

Within a tough group of lichens to identify, this species stands out with a body that resembles finely branching coral. In our area it grows over soil and moss, typically sheltered at the base of low cliffs. It’s found mostly near the ocean, and occasionally in humid upland sites south to California. Found on Salt Spring Island at two locations.
