More lichens

The narrow green things in the background are a species of Cladonia lichen. I know they look very different from what I told you was Cladonia in another photo. Its a highly diverse group. The dark lichen is a dog lichen, which is the genus Peltigera. They are a little easier to identify, but still you need a technical key and some chemical tests to be 100% certain of the species id. However, this group you might be able to narrow it down to a handful of species by looking at pictures.
