Dibaeis baeomyces (L. fil.) Rambold & Hertel

Almost an unmistakable lichen, if fertile, for its pink mushroom-like apothecia and pale-coloured crustose thallus. It usually grows on exposed acidic soil, and its typical habitat are heathlands. However, the species may be found also in other biotopes, including anthropogenic ones. Dibaeis baeomyces largely prefers permanently lit, open habitats. It occurs scattered from lowlands to mountains across the Czech Republic. In Europe, it is a widespread lichen.
