I did not see any green when I looked at this under the scope. I added the micrographs last night. I did see one thing that looked like a basidia but I am not 100% sure.

…but I still don’t think it’s a lichen. I’ve never seen or heard of any like it, at least. Since you have a specimen, you can verify trivially: slice it open and look for algae. A green layer should be visible even at 10x or 30×. Certainly, a section should show green-filled cells at 1000×. Maybe you’ll find basidia instead.

I do not think it is Stereum, its more of a crust. I have a sample if anyone wants it. I am not aware of any bright yellow Stereum. The color was striking.

Pretty sure this isn’t a lichen, at least.
