Thanks again, Jason, for calling my attention to this observation.

This is also my feeling,

but I have to admit my mistakes. The worst is that I find no plausible explanation, for according to my records not picked any Lecanora that day.

Haha, I hate when that happens!

Very embarrassing question!

Yes, it could and it was my first thought about it (more precisely, P. hymenea). But this is a very embarrassing question to me and I´m still trying to find the reason. After that first thought, when coming home I made a quick microscopic observation of something that was a Lecanora, but I didn´t record it because it was just to know if the initial guess was right or not. The question is that now I cannot find the specimen that I saw at that time and repeting the procedure for one of the specimens in the photos (I have samples from the specimens in photos 1 and 2) it clearly shows a Pertusaria sp.. I upload a photo of this quick observation and with some more time I will try to classify it.
My apologies for the mistake, but I can not explain better what happened.

Could this be Pertusaria, too?
