Earthstars

Seen on the 5th January, in damp woodland near Thetford, Norfolk. A group of four together, with another one nearby. Presumably quite old fruitbodies, so I'm not sure of their i.d.

Fungi for i.d. please

A couple of different fungi, taken on the edge of heathland and coniferous woodland on 4th September in west Suffolk.
The first formed several large troops in the area.

'Chewing gum' lichen for i.d.

Found on a paving slab in my back garden in northwest Suffolk. one of the 'chewing gum' lichens, perhaps Aspicilia contorta, or Lecanora muralis. Not much to go on. Any confirmation welcome. Thanks

? rust on Rhododdendron

Seen on Rhododendrons growing near the Suffolk coast, by a pathway between plantations and water meadows on 13th May. I don't have a microscope, so these are the only images available -- not sure whether enough for i.d.
