Lichenomphalia, Basidio lichen and a huge pin lichen

Yay!  I finally found a basidomycete lichen.  This is a lichen:
This was growing on the same rotten wood as the Lichenophalia.  It was releasing spores and
fine hairs (If I liver wort I would call them elator) were in the capsules.  At X30 magnification I could
see the fine hair flexing.  If these are pin lichens they are huge ones.  I guess they must be pins
becasue they are mazidiate (sp?)

Lichenomphalia from Mason County
