Is this by any chance Peltigera venosa 'Fan Lichen'?
I'll start by saying I know virtually nothing about lichens.
This is one of my favorite things in my garden, and I didn't plant it. It's growing throughout my path, and has been increasing for several years.
I call it a lichen, but for all I know, it's not. Today I Googled "fan shaped lichen" and the name above is what I came up with. It does look very similar. Can anyone help me identify this? Thanks very much!
