There are more than one lichen in this photo. The one of interest to me is the bright yellow one.

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.
