A rather thick crustose lichen growing on a drystane dyke. Help with ID, please.
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.
Sorry Thistle, but minute surface features are critical for identification of crustose lichens and there is too much camera movement here.
Maybe it's something I don't know anyway, but I cannot suggest a name for this.
I still trying to get to grips with a new camera and had closed the aperture down to try to get better depth of field. The trade-off, of course, is longer exposure and more chance of a bit of shoogle. I'll try to find it again and have another go.
