I found that in a monastery garden in Czech Republic this winter. I tried to search it on the internet but unfortunately I didn't find it.

I'm pretty sure that it is a cup lichen from the genus Cladonia. A probable species is Cladonia pyxidata, which is relatively common across Europe. My lichen knowlegde is rusty though, and Cladonia is rather species rich with several species that are relatively similar.

  • $\begingroup$ Cladonia is right for sure. Pyxidata I doubt. Impossible to be sure from a picture anyway. $\endgroup$ – RHA Mar 8 '18 at 18:55
