Many green tufty clumps on Hawthorn branches.
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.
Many thanks for the IDs. I'd naively assumed it was all one species (having never tried to ID lichens before...), but the first looks more like Fallow deer antlers, the second is more filamentous. Closer crops now attached in case they help confirm.

Pics 1 & 3 are certainly Evernia prunastri. Pics 2 & 4 have the jizz of Ramalina farinacea, and I think they are this, but I can't rule out E. prunastri with certainty.
Pics 2 and 4 have clearly delimited, discoid soralia, which supports their being Ramalina farinacea.
Many thanks for your very helpful input on this.
Many thanks Alan - very helpful to have this expert confirmation. I've taken more lichen photos since (they're so photogenic and they grow well in unpolluted rural Wiltshire!), so must post them when I have a chance.
