Thanks. Looks like this could be the one. Such an interesting place. Would have liked to look more, but was far too busy seeing loads of fungi. Neat place.

Only a couple species of yellow Acarospora in the area

A. novomexicana — looks like Pleopsidium, can rule this out.
A. chrysops — has broadly-attached scattered areoles
A. tuckerae — (called A. “rubescens” in Harris & Ladd 2005), also broadly-attached and scattered
A. heufleriana — only one left! The Sharnoffs have a photo, and it looks promising.
