IMG_2225 - Trentepohlia

Rust coloured stain on South-facing side of tree-trunk. I have no idea what it could be. (It didn't seem to be paint!) It seemed like a deep red version of the green film on the wooden fence nearby. Small white speckles of crustose lichen and patches of orange lichen were also present.
