    saprophytes

    Kidding, saprobes. I am looking for an ID of any sort of what I am looking at here. Hiking through coos county, oregon, on the coast, I came across this damp rock wall covered in this whisker like fungal bodies. Spores? Fruiting bodies? I have no idea but I am trying to put it in a journal so I need to identify this fungi as something!

    As a thank you for helping, or simply looking, enjoy this coastal algae trentepohlia sp, a common photobiont in lichen but in this instance I believe, just an alga
