Here’s a selection of lichens which I found on some rowan tree trunks a couple of weeks ago, in some woodland quite near Glenrothes, in Fife.
I’m certainly no expert on the identification of lichens, I’ve attempted to identify four of the lichens in the first image, down to the genus, but if anyone knows differently, please let me know!! 🙂
The first photo below, shows possibly four crustose lichens. I haven’t tried to identify the lichens in the other photos, but the featured image is probably the genus Xanthoria.
Top Left – possibly the genus “Fuscidea”
Middle Top – possibly the genus “Caloplaca”
Middle Bottom – possibly another species of the genus “Caloplaca”
Bottom Right – probably a “Script Lichen”
