Crustose lichen on lime tree in urban area. Thallus appears to be thin and white/green, with black "fruit gums" for fruiting bodies. As it happens there apprears to be other crustose lichens in photo - immediately above a lichen with thin brown thallus and black fruting bodies, and to the left a black lichen (verrucaria?).


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

black lichen

dunno what it is, or even if it is a lichen, but not a Verrucaria.

I have agreed to "Lecidella elaeochroma forma elaeochroma" but the photo doesn't have enough resolution to prove absence of soredia, so really I should only go along with "Lecidella elaeochroma".
