    However hard I looked this morning there was very little new things to post. But this very small Beard lichen on a twig amongst the leaves caught my eye.
    IMO it doesn't have to be large amounts of fungi or lichen to be appreciated.

    Agree - Am all for appreciation of small things! :-)
    This resembles Evernia prunastri (Oak Moss / Antlered Perfume), and is clearly something along those lines: It looks a fair bit different from the Evernia prunastri in my region and I think in your region you also have Pseudevernia and some Evernias we don't have.

    @Frog thanks again for the correct ID J. I have amended the thread title accordingly. I am on the hunt for different lichen, so hope to post new and varied types over this Winter. Glad it is something different than you have there.
