I’ve been reading a lot about the health benefits ofLichen
Here in Savannah, we have a lot of Spanish moss
How do I know or identify a healthy lichen to use for medicinal purposes?
Im sure the bottom specimen is lichen. I cannot tell if the other is a form of lichen or spanish moss. Both are lichen are either good for medicinal use.

    I’m not an expert of lichens and can only speculate. It might be in the Usnea genus ( beard lichen). I don’t know which species you have. Copy and paste the included link below for more information. Scroll down for species list & more images click to enlarge. Best wishes!
