Xanthoria growing on Physcia

I’m pretty sure it’s X. hasseana (note the apothecium in dead center of top photo with rhizines bristling all around it), and the gray Physcia is heavily maculate, so P. aipolia is a safe bet. These probably grew on a dead limb up in the canopy, fell, and then got mulched with everything else. Probably recently because they still look perfectly healthy.
