Hi Randy,

Looks like Platismatia tuckermanii on either end of the twig, and you
can see some Pseudevernia consocians above your palm. I'm not sure
what the others are, but it looks like they're providing lots of nice
invertebrate habitat. Both Platismatia and Psuedevernia are common on
old conifers around the Cataloochee section of the Smokies.
