ID Comment

Should these entries not be within the "fungi and lichens" section ?

ID of the lichen or the tree?

If you are identifying the tree it would be good to see more evidence for your decision - leaves, overall shape etc.
For the lichen the photo could be a little crisper and the ID needs to give genera rather than growth pattern.
Usually iSpot IDs just one species at a time - this could be three entries.
Good luck with your course!
