This lichen was abundant on smooth barked trees, possibly lime tree.
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.
Very young thalli, so not easy. The largest grey thallus is Physcia. The cilia (hair-like structures) distinguish it from Hypogymnia. The two smaller thalli might be Hypogymnia, but I think they are more likely to be Physcia too. However, if they are Hypogymnia, I don't think it's visually possible to arrive at a species... but I might be wrong. I usually ignore young material.
