“Cladonia cristatella, more commonly known as the British Soldier Lichen, is a prime example of mutually beneficial symbiosis in nature between algae and fungus. They are most commonly found in the north-eastern Region of the United States as well as the eastern half of Canada. During the late 1700’s people thought these caps resembled the caps of British Soldiers of the day, thus the name British Soldier Lichen.”
