Lichen, and there are many different types and species, are a symbiotic association between a fungus and algae or cyanobacteria. Both organisms are dependent on each other for their health and survival. They indicate a lack of air pollution and provide food and habitat for micro organisms and invertebrates. I don't know my lichens well enough to be able to give you a name, sorry.
