Rabbit Rock is choke-full of different Lepraria species

This one is distinctive because its soredia look glazed over by something and hardened almost like isidia, but if you poke it with needle it reveals the soft interior. Also, even though these photos don’t give it justice, the surface in many places is covered by dark web of what appears to be some sort of hyphae. The different species seen in the third photo down is shown in observation 188192. Note the contrast in color. Also see observation 188505, observation 188610, observation 188612, observation 188618, observation 188620.
