Lichen or fungus?

Observation - Lichen or fungus?. Description: It's not often that I can't even get the id down to kingdom level, but is this a fungus or a lichen? Growing in my lawn (well it's more moss and bedstraw than grass), very sandy soil in partial shade. The patch in the first photo is maybe 30-40cms across.
