Recognized by sight: Looks like those wicked black rhizines are simple (i.e., not squarrose with lots of tiny side-hairs). I think Phaeophyscia is the only genus that does this (though not always). If it were squarrose then it would definitely be Physconia. Was this taken through a hand-lens?? Nice shot for the field!

Yes the photograph’s taken with hand lens and I think that is why you find slight colour distortion in my images too.. since I have opened my eyes to the world of fungi/lichens.. this place has indeed taken a different hue.. being a wildlife sanctuary (although a small one) makes it an ideal place.. :))
