Identifications

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

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

  • Orange crustose lichen
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
  •  
    Likely ID
    an alga (Trentepohlia sp.)
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.

Alga?

There is something like that at the edges of the image. I have agreed with the Lichen as it is closest to the center of the image.
