Came across some green fungi, am I right in assuming they have the green colouring due to the moss where they are growing?

It's also possible that these brackets have a coating of algae growing on them rather than a moss.

To me, these look to have become inhabited with a mix of both algae and mosses.

Trametes gibbosa (Lumpy Bracket) fruitbodies, to which at first glance, these look fairly similar, are noted for their associations with algae.
(But the deeply radially ridged and sharply indented pore surfaces on these bear no resemblance to the typical pore surface of T.gibbosa).

Common sense is not so common.

I think this indeed represents over-mature Trametes gibbosa in which the radially elongated pore surface has become exaggerated.

Another similar bracket is Cerrena unicolor.
It can have more rugged pores like this and also has hairs on the top edge which this appears to have.
