Island Beach SP False Reindeer Lichen - related plants

While focusing on deer lichen, I found these related plants. Photographed July 24, 2009. The earthstar is the same as found at Camp Helen and other locations near deer lichen in NW Florida. The orchid-colored flowers are lovely. The pitch pine (Pinus rigida) usually hanging around deer lichens in NJ is different from the pine tree species of NW Florida. Another reindeer lichen-related plant is beach heather (Hudsonia tomentosa), covered on the lichen pages. Back to the New Jersey Island Beach SP travel page.
