Hypogymnia physoides

Description:
This leafy lichen has smooth and hollow lobes. It is pale grey above and dark brown below. It reproduces via powdery granules called soralia, which are formed when the hollow apex of a young lobe splits open.

Habitat:
This is one of the most widespread lichens on tree barks and fence posts. It is found throughout Europe.
