I consulted with a USFS lichenologist and the most likely species is L. linita based on the apothecia.
Pixie cup lichen growing on dry moss/soil, prairie area. Pale green spindles, red tops.
Observed on #bioblitz2016 with @pchines
Lecanoromycetes is the largest class of lichenized fungi. It belongs to the subphylum Pezizomycotina in the phylum Ascomycota. The asci (spore-bearing cells) of the Lecanoromycetes most often release spores by rostrate dehiscence.
