Some kind of Aspicilia?

Just been reading Bryologist about new species A.bicensis. While chemistry is different, there are some morphological similarities (maybe)…

I’ve never seen anything like this. Chemistry is strange, too: K+y, C+y, KC-, UV-, P+y strong and quick. I’ve never seen C+y that’s not stronger KC+y, what’s up with that?! It’s purely pustulate-schizidiate, no soredia at all. The pustules are hollow and very fragile, breaking into schiziate fragments at the slightest attempt to section them. No idea what this is.

These are called pustules

It’s frustrating, I’ve seen this thing, but I can’t remember where or what its name was. :(

Perhaps I am wrong…

Upon further examination, they are not as soft as they appear. Not all of them anyways. The parts in the middle of thallus are soft and crushable, but on the fringes it’s harder. Maybe it’s not soredia but actually is a medulla that’s I am seeing?

Have no clue :(

This lichen is soft, even though at the first glance it appears to be something else. Those little “cotton balls” consist of soredia and can be smashed fairly easily, but covered by a crust unlike exposed soredia of Lepraria
