Cladonia humilis forma

Synonyms:

Family: CLADONIACEAE

Habitat: Aerohaline zone

Description

     This form differs from the type by its puzzling aspect given by the presence of podetions reminiscent of other species and this often with "normal" podetions of Cladonia humilis. We can observe strongly scaly podetions like those of Cladonia squamosa, others with small squamules like those of Cladonia pyxidata, others with a long stipe like in Cladonia fimbriata; we can even sometimes observe podetions whorled or branched by the growth of secondary podetions! The colored chemical reactions are those of the type: K + yellow, C-, KC-, P + orange to red. This form is not very rare in the freshly stirred soil of gardens by the sea, sandy soil but rich in woody organic matter, always close to the type. N.B. To summarize a taxon which seems to hesitate about its identity!
