Unknown bracket, help please.

I realise that this is old, indeed I know it's been there a long time as others here have passed comment on it. I have had an attempt at an identification but really not got far.

Re: Cladonia id help please.

Thanks Neil. Sounds like I need to dust off those chemicals and head off back across the fields. This was actually the best specimen I could find! I'll post the chemical result when I've given that a go if I can make it work.

Cladonia id help please.

This Cladonia was photographed on West Mainland, Orkney 30/01/2021. It was on an old wooden fence stave. These are wet grazing meadows, at sea level. I'm just trying to learn lichens and at the moment I'm not using chemicals or taking specimens unless I really need to so my identification method is ...
