Star Rosette Lichen

Physcia stellaris


Technically doesn't fall under the fungi category, but I was unsure of where else to put it.


Found in the Guelph Arboretum on an ivory silk lilac tree.

it is a subspecies of the "kingdom" fungi, therefore it is right at the category fungi. slime molds are actually no longer belonging to the fungi-kingdom but will still count for me, here to them. slime mold no longer fungi but "amoebazoas" . lichen are still fungi. cheers
