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 again for your help in identification, Nigel!
but immature and I wouldn't name it even to genus for certain without checking the internal tissue gives a vivid but very brief red reaction with bleach. I cannot rule out a Melanohalea.
Thanks so much for your comments, Alan. I'm finding lichens very difficult to pin down to a specific species!!
slowly the names start trickling in.
But be careful, lichens are addictive!
..... full of beautiful surprises and wonderment! How come I've never really noticed them before!!
