No worries, I trust that both species are in there. I just want to see these photos come up high on the stack for C. flavovirescens! :)

Don’t mind at all.

I collected number of pebbles with Caloplaca on them – not all pictured here of course. My bad :-(

Would you mind terribly using the other name

for this observation? If Jim said both were present, let’s go with the other. I’m having trouble actually finding any C. citrina in these photos! :)

(But they’re lovely photos of the fertile species!)

C.citrina + C.flavovirescens

The former is sorediate, and the latter is esorediate. The only reason I included these common species here is that I like how they create “ocellii” on pebbles.
