Growing along path on rocks in shady areas.
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.
Either Cladonia macilenta: http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/Cladonia_macilenta.html
or Cladonia polydactyla: http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/Cladonia_polydactyla.html
They can be difficult to tell apart!
Thank you for those links to the Alan Silverside web site.On other sites I've found you are faced with a list of species names and if like me you only have a photo and no knowledge of lichens it is hard to get started.Is there a similar web site with thumbnail photos for fungi? Could a link to his site be put on the main fungi lichen page?
Not many people seem to use the Forums but I put links to Alan Silverside's website and other useful websites in the Fungi and Lichen forum about a year ago.
Fourth down, 'Lichen Identification Resources'
I have used the links and they are useful,but if someone put's an observation on it does help if they put size,area found a good close up pic and a bit more information for other's to get it's ID correct,but I must say it is one of the more difficult areas to ID as most lichen's and mosses are small.I have just ordered Collins Photo Guide-Ferns,mosses and lichens which has good feedback,and excellent photographs.
I'm not putting up a definite ID but this looks more like C. floerkeana to me. Unfortunately, it's necessary to check the podetial surface with a lens.
Thanks for links to my website.
I've added the lichen sites mentioned above to our main page on fungi and lichens at:
Thanks for the suggestions.
