White Green-algae Fungus

Multiclavula mucida


Also called club lichen. The white part is a fungus that always grows in algae, making it a lichen. And it looks like there's some moss thrown in for good measure too.

There looks to be a few different things going on here. There is moss, but it is intermittent.. That green slime is most likely an algae. The white little clubs are a fungus called White Green-algae Coral (Multiclavula mucida)
