Two species, probably

Yellower one is confirmed by J.Bennett – C.flavovirescens The oranger one didn’t make it into the sample. The photos toward the bottom (or to the right depending on your screen arrangement) seem to be from the “orange group”? But on the other hand they’re yellower on the perimeter and oranger inwards. Also, isn’t C.flavovirescens supposed to have orange apothecia? Totally confused now :-( Compare with observation 194175

by throwing several species together on the same spot on the rock (or tree). They just don’t understand…

I’m wondering if the second photo is something else

(I mean image 490094 in particular.) It looks oranger and might have better-developed distinct areolate thallus. Compared to the others with thin yellowish thallus. I wonder if the thinner yellower ones are Caloplaca flavovirescens and the oranger areolate one C. subsoluta or something like that…

Looks like the same lichen, but some apothecia are older and darker?
