Donna I email some authority on it and got this responce:

Dear Mr. Carruba,

The organism is an unlichenized fungus, not a lichen. It looks like it's a "bracket fungus," perhaps in the Polyporaceae. I don't recognize it myself. I hope that helps.

Sincerely, Irwin Brodo

Subject: lichen

I have been trying to identify this

I looked through your 80 or so pictures in the galleries and also did some other searches but have yet to find a simular likeness

I thought maybe you might know what it is right off hand

I took this photo in Tiverton, RI

Hi Chris, did you get the post about Lou? I have seen this fungus before but I have no real idea what it is...maybe it's a lichen? I know about looking around for people to help with ID's, and you can post a query on the pbase forum with your picture and that will also help... I like your pictures and am curious about where you took this one?
