Moss? Lichen? What is it?

I found this over the weekend in an alpine forest, unattached, all dried up, at the base of a pine tree. It looks different from the moss I'm used to seeing; I re-hydrated it in water for a few minutes and placed it on some rocks and soil to see what happens.

Does anyone know what it is? Thank you.
