Recognized by sight: Apothecia seem more pruinose than in mellea/pseudomellea, and while somewhat dark, I don’t think it is dark/brown enough. Sierrae is similar, but should not have lobes this flattened, among other things. While I was trying to find a variety, this documents some of the variability of muralis if nothing else.
