Spotting rare-ish plants in the British Hills
Monday June 18, 2007

Part of the Mountain Leader award is knowledge of flora and fauna in the British hills, so it was nice to spot this beautiful little lichen. I spent a whole day on Arenig Fawr looking for this particular plant and only found one all day!

On my ML training course this club lichen was called Devil's Matchstick, although I've since found out that it's more likely to be Lipstick Cladonia, or Cladonia macilenta.

It seems that Devil's Matchstick is more likely to have black tips, rather than red. Its latin name is Pilophorus acicularis.
