I am unsure if this is Crustose or Foliose yellow Lichen?


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

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

  • Yellow Lichen
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.

These are crustose lichens.

These are crustose lichens. The 'cup shapes' in the second photo are the apothecia or fruiting bodies.
