Flavo is a lichen, not a fungi (okay partial fungi, partial algae)

And I thought your notes said you wanted to identify the fungal growth on the Flavo.

I think some of the confusion is that I originally posted it, then saw your note and deleted Flavo and then put my next response.

Check my new response which probably came seconds after you posted your response.

also, when I have fungus with other fungus I sometimes use the program paint to make a circle to delineate it for viewers so I dont get all the additional comments like “mixed collection”


I also use yellow because it is less likely to blend in for viewers that have some form of colorblindness (like myself)

As written in the notes …

Flavoparmelia caperata is the host of the fungus I’m trying to identify!
