Yes I have moss in some places for sure. The darker rubbery stuff is lichen? Never seen this kind I guess. Its definitely in spots that need more light but one area its almost covering the whole section which is out in the open with lots of light.
A man could go all his life and not see every kind of lichen. There are over 20,000 varieties.
Lichen was my guess based on what I could see in those poor quality pictures. Get some better pictures and my answer might change - or it might not change.
I had to downsize the pics to post them. Those are really close up as further away is a sea of green. They are very small but touching them feels like almost rubbery. The picture with the larger leaves was spread out more so thought it would show more of what they look like
What kind of picture would help? I can try tomorrow after work
It is difficult to see from the pictures, I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I commend you for at least doing that lol
I believe I have the same stuff growing on top of the gravel area in front of my shed, I do most of my mechanical work there and also where my riding mowers, 4 wheelers and boat are parked so I always figured it was something that fed off rust or oils that have dripped off leaky 4 wheelers kind of thing. It is mushy yet holds together after a rain but very rubbery when dry. It only grows in that 30x40 area at my house and only in the dry gravel area. I will definitely look it up, thank you for bringing this up!
