I think it's a fungus, but I'd like an id please.

Identifications

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

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

    Likely ID
    Cladonia sp.
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.

Fungus or lichen

Though I'm far from an expert on either fungi or lichen, I believe the photograph shows a lichen rather than a a fungus. Further than that, I am unable to go, sorry.
