My understanding of C. pocillum

is that it forms a flat rosette, like a Physcia, say. Are you finding photos of examples of pocillum that look like this? I grant that the squamules are nice and big, but I’m not seeing the rosette. Certainly you are often in calcareous regions, so pocillum is definitely expected. This just doesn’t look like what I’ve seen…
