Different kind of lichens, from staghorn type to moss type...Really tiny ones, not bigger than 2-3 cm each...Found them in a tree trunk, at Tarakena bay, Wellington New Zealand


I know it's lichens but i don't have a clue wich species they are...Please do not forget I am in New Zealand, so probably you will have to double check the suggested ID

Dear @MilesBerkey, thank you for the suggestion, I will check on those lichen species :)

Okay check out these gunus': for the white, more appressed lichen in the middle could be of the genus Hypogymnia. The green on on the right, (maybe left?) could be Evernia. The little coral lichen in the back could be Usnea..... maybe
