It’s all exciting. Both are very widespread species (complexes?), so no tremendous surprise. But still, Mexico is badly undercollected, so good to see this stuff.

There seems to be reddish apothecia in the center-right of the photo (next to round white thingy)

You can just make out two apparently black apothecia

in the bottom center-left of the first photo. Veins are very indistinct, surface shiny and hairless, so clearly polydactylon group. Only question left then is whether the dark apothecia really are pitch black when dry or merely sunburnt brown of, say, P. polydactylon instead.
