Then we never be able to answer the question of whether it has soredia definitively. I see the apothecia, but that doesn’t rule out P. subtilis. I think I might see granules… but so hard to be sure. Is there a particular photo you recommend that demonstrates that it’s just the thallus breaking down a bit, not actually soredia?

Sadly, lacking a specimen for this observation, so ID will be tentative forever…
