that this looks like a Placidium and, if I correctly identified the specimen in observation 109401, then P. squamulosum is a good proposal for the name of it.

These grow on soil embedded into crevices in the bluffs. But as you can see from photos, some of those soil “curds” are just laying loose on the surface, seemingly detached from everything, with lichen growing on them. I wonder how they are not swept away by rains since they are located on the edges of bluffs.
