Lichen - Scoliciosporum sp. or Micarea sp. An unfortunately bad photo, but I was actually taking a picture of a nearby insect and only spotted this lichen during editing. According to an expert, it&#039;s probably either Scoliciosporum sp. or Micarea sp.. Neither of these 2 genera seem easy to ID or commonly documented, so I may not get a species-level ID. <br />
