Notes: White granular to smooth crustose lichen on sycamore. Lichen appears to have subtle green cast not apparent in field and ‘striate’ distribution due to texture of sycamore bark.

seems to be dwarf fruiticose filimentous lichen in Brodo. The white I’d hazard are a crustose sterile lichen. There appears to be two different small ropey (thread?) lichens in the bottom half of the photo on the right-hand side. These are only visible when photo is on maximum enlargement. Maybe Ramalia?
I don’t see the the “cotton string attached to a small nail” – what part of the photo is that?
Good question. I thought the widely distributed white stuff to be crust fungi until I took some closeup photos. The black stuff is most apparent due to removal of bark scales by me and probably is fungi. (Moral: take picture first, take samples second) I had not noticed it but will add it to my DNA run. I don’t know what stringy stuff you are mentioning. One photo would appear to have a piece of cotton string attached to a small nail – is that it?
lichen are you referencing here, Martin? The black, the white or the stringy white?
