Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
It isn't doing much to propagate itself, no soredia, no apothecia.
It certainly could be P. cinerea, but I cannot rule out P. aipolia.
No substrate information provided, but as P. aipolia is usually on trees but sometimes on sheltered walls, and P. cinerea is usually on walls and rock but sometimes on dust-impregnated tree trunks, it wouldn't be definitive anyway.
Put it down as an immature Physcia.
Thanks, as always, for your invaluable comments. That's the second immature lichen I've posted. I'll try to remember the substrate info next time (it was a wall in this case).
Is cinerea a synonym for caesia?
"Is cinerea a synonym for caesia?"
No, it's a b____ stupid typo for caesia.
Checks time of posting, concludes insufficient coffee intake.
Sorry about that.
btw, I think caesia is indeed most likely, but without soredia it's iffy.
