as I understand it. I know T. flavicans is supposed to be sorediate, but according to the discussion in the Sonoran Flora, both species can be fertile, and distinguishing them when fertile can be very difficult. In fact, it claims, counter to numerous reports to the contrary, that T. exilis doesn’t actually occur in northwestern Mexico and California (doesn’t cover Oaxaca region naturally), showing just how prone to misidentification specimens such as these can be presumably.
In any case, it is definitely not the “other” fertile species, T. chrysophthalmus because that should clearly have lots of cilia on the backs and margins of the apothecia.
