Surprisingly willing to stay still for photographs on a rainy day. Vegetation: red oak. Relatively confident it's in Chrysididae, but species ID is best guess.

Description

Gray crustose lichen with red coloration found on two rocks, one at the edge of the Billings-Avery Brook and a second in a stone wall, both within the same preserve - These red-pigmented lichen seem locally uncommon compared to similar, unpigmented lichen- Regarding an identification, "Christmas Lichen" is not reported in New England area, but it is the closest ID based on simple visual characteristics (red pigmentation)- Lichenologists, please advise regarding a correct identification and red pigments in lichen. Thanks!
