Can anyone identify this please. It is growing at the base of a lot of Ash trees. It is easy to rub off.
I intend to coppice these trees. Will it suppress the growth of new buds.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
It is a moss, a lower plant, which to identify to a named species really needs a photo or photos that show the shape of the leaves, eg pointed, rounded and other features of the leaves. It looks like a common species, perhaps Clustered Feather-moss (Rhynchostegium confertum)?
It wont affect any re-growth of coppiced trees, but does provide habitat for invertebrates etc.
