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.
You should really split this observation. You have a Ramalina sp. (R. subfarinacea?) in the first photo and Evernia prunastri in the second.
Thanks very much. I've deleted the 2nd and will post a new obsevation in the next few days.
I've made a few mistakes in my observations to-day but in my defence I was using a new lens and having to concentrate so hard on that I obviously wasn't aware of what I was photographing. I'm sure these 2 were on the same tree?!
Ramalina farinacea and Evernia prunastri can often be seen together on the same tree.
Looking again it's obviously not usnea and has the typical strap-like form of a Ramalina. I've agreed with synangium. Is there any way I can remove my incorrect ID?
iSpot won't let users delete a revision or correct typos in the notes attached to one - sometimes frustrating, but I guess it's all part of the audit trail showing how an ID has been arrived at.
