I know Trentepohlia ;)
It looks like but it has not. There are many rusty red Tomentellas with that felty surface. Love that genus but it is so difficult. Gladly two specialists were with this foray in France last year and will be this year too. So much to learn from them.

We call that Trentepohlia!


(just kidding) it does look like there might be some chlorophyll in there…,
