Added: 13th October 2011 Description:
In an old Devon hedge bank, wooded farmland, near the River Torridge and just outside a Devon Wildlife reserve. Several areas of this grey growth with green fern like growth from what looked like fruiting bodies on the edges of the grey circular growth.
Identifications Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be. Notes: Possibly P. membranacea, but there are some others similar. The green growth is a moss coming up from below.
Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be. Notes: As suggested by Syrphus, this is P. membranacea. We don't have a view of the underside, usually essential for naming Peltigera species, but in view of the lobe shape and the characteristic "bullate" wrinkles on the upper surface, it is safe to give an ID of this common species. Friendly note to Judy: Just as well this is an easily recognised species, as the size of the photograph, even at the highest available magnification is very small - I would probably not have named any other Peltigera species without a larger photograph.
