I’ve got no clue what these are, of course, but it’ll save the trouble of asking you to dig out specimens and test them in the future if someone comes along who does know the flora of thearea. Spot tests are critical to get anywhere with these sterile crustose lichens.

With KOH, it turned from whitish-green to a darker green color. When dilute bleach was added, it quickly turned bright yellow.
