Grey-green folios lichen with large lobes on sycamore tree. Fruits appear to be absent, but I thought I saw 'net-like' soredia. However lobes appear a little wrinkly - could it be flavoparmelia spp. (soredians?). In any case, lichen does not appear to be well developed.


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

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

Out of focus

The photograph does not show critical surface features.

"In any case, lichen does not appear to be well developed." - Exactly!

I really don't think it is appropriate to attempt to ID this. Sorry.
