Apothecia (if it’s apothecia) are the size of the sand grains (some can be seen in photos), while the entire patch is smaller than a dime. I thought it was Cladonia at first, since it shared the “perch” with it, but was able to separate the two (or three, or five – I never know how many species of Cladonia are there together).
