I have no clue what this might be, even though I thought I was pretty familiar with the southern California flora. Nice find, Christian!

If not bright colors, morphology somewhat resembles Acarospora thelococcoides (photo in Nash III, T.H., Gries, C. and Bungartzk, F. (eds) (2007) Lichen Flora of the Greater Sonoran Desert Region, Volume 3)
