These lichens were found on the twigs of a sycamore tree. Thank you to synangium for identification of Xanthoria parietina not Xanthoria polycarpa as I had previously identified, and also for confirmation of Physcia tenella,


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

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