Re: Lichen ID help please - Lecidea lithophila ?

Hello Mark, welcome to the forum.

Don't be phased by inundating us, we actively encourage all levels of ability and are willing to help. Clearly, we don't want too many 'what is this, questions' without any effort put in but you have made a thorough attempt at identification.

Mortierella bainieri?

Re: On Oak Leaf

Hello Paul

Many thank for the comments and happy to send you the sample (leaf) as I've got as far as I'm able.

Best wishes, Chris
