Or it could be any of a dozen sterile crusts I’ve never heard of… But B. rufus can have sterile thalli, even this size. Texture and color and habitat are similar.

pretty green lichen

Beautiful Lichen Andrew!

I have no idea what species it is – “Species” here as in specific kind of lichen. Lichens are communities composed of algae, fungi, and cyanobacteria. Some combinations are well adapted and persist for many generations, other combinations last for a little while and die out. It’s hard to say what a species of lichen is.

Beautiful green thing.

Too bad there is probably no ID for this.
