    Thank you.

    I thought maybe a fungus or lichen, but am not sure. It was found growing on a fallen tree in the woods.

    Thanks again!

    botanystudent101,

    I was refering to the greenish-gray flat growth that is tight to the log between the mushrooms (which look somewhat like oyster mushrooms). I think that is a lichen.

    The green in your other post in the botany forum is definately moss.
