Xanthoria parietina.jpg

Foliose/crustose lichen - white, yellow and black on red brick mortar wall, north facing. Not sure if the yellow lichen is Xanthoria polycarpa or Xanthoria parietina.


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

Not Xanthoria parietina

The yellow lichen definitely isn't Xanthoria, its not possible to identify it from the photo but it might be a Candelariella
