I apologise for the poor picture quality!


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

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

The detail in your picture is difficult to see. The lichen does look like a Cladonia species. I think many of the Cladonia species look similar and differences in tiny features are used to begin to separate the species. It may be that 'Cladonia species' will be as far as it is possible to go for an identification from the picture.

Thanks Phil, I am really struggling with an old digital camera without a macro feature!
