What they’re “supposed” to look like when they’re happy.

Could be either on vertical, horizontal or angled surfaces. This is the first batch I discovered with well-developed apothecia. Previously, I’ve seen them but for a long time didn’t realise what I was looking at, because without apothecia they often blend in with, lets say, Lasallia papullosa (see photos 4 & 5 from the top). I also remember confusing a batch of the small-sized ones for Dermatocarpon miniatum.
