White crustose on a rock very close to high tide mark where it would be splashed but not usually covered. Black fruiting bodies.
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.
Thanks for the correct genus name. Should I change the title of my observation to its present name or leave it?
Yes, my book is old, but not as old as some other nature books that I've had since I was a child!!
But I think that it would be better to change the title.
I am not disparaging old books of course. I have lichen books that are more than 200 years old now and am fascinated by them. Not much use for identification though!
