LICHEN


A foliose (leafy) lichen. You bet. Thats all I can find out about this nice yellow lichen.
All lichens are symbiotic associations between two organisms - a fungus and either algae or cyanobacteria.
Found in the New Forest again.

After a little research, a long while later, I have come to the conclusion that this lichen is probably "Common Orange Lichen", r to give it its scientific name...

Xanthoria parietina.

Certainly a Xanthoria anyway.
