unused pavement

This crustose lichen is found in abundance in this area - most patches are bleached white (sulphur dioxide?) but there are some lichen which are slightly greener.


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

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

Whiter thalli are probably just drier. I don't think it is overly bothered by current sulphur dioxide levels anywhere in the UK, not even on the fringes of Manchester.
