Sticta
   

Sticta

Sticta is leafy and usually brown, black or dark gray on top. The bottom is commonly of a lighter shade than the top and may smell “fishy” when wet. Be careful not to confuse with Melanelia, which has a darker bottom. These lichens grow on trees and shrubs, with some showing a preference for hardwoods..
