encrusting fungus

Observation - encrusting fungus - UK and Ireland. Description: I think this is a fungus rather than a lichen. Perhaps one of the curtain crusts. Photo taken on Monday's iSpot Exploring Nature walk in Thorncombe Woods, Dorchester. See http://www.dorsetwalks.com for dates of forthcoming walks.
