This unmistakable, shrubby lichen forms neat sprays of grey-green tufted lobes 2-5cm high, terminating in numerous cream-coloured discs. The stiff, shiny, partly-deflated nature of the erect lobes anchored by a strong holdfast gives the whole plant a domed or conical appearance like an exuberant arrangement of tubular trumpets. Common on well-lit trees, along hedgerows, parks and in gardens, basic-bark preferred.
