Fruticose lichen (and grey crustose lichen)


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

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

    Likely ID
    Fruticose lichen
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
Species interactions

No interactions present.

Sorry, but ...

I see no fruticose lichen here, only poorly developed crustose species.

There are at least two moss species and some grass, the clumped moss species apparently being Orthotrichum anomalum.

Thanks Alan - I wondered

Thanks Alan - I wondered about this one. I think I need to revisit my knowledge of fruticose lichen - wishful thinking perhaps, given the poor pickings in the necropolis!
