I’ve checked Thomson briefly

13 species of Bacidia mentioned there grow either on trees or mossy rock or sandstone. I haven’t checked other features yet, and in my experience Thomson’s substrate assumptions turn out to be incorrect in light of more modern science.

That’s what I thought, too

Yikes, there’s a lot of options according to CNALH. (I just looked at a species list searching for Bacidia in Wisconsin.)

I don’t know what the correct terminology for those young white, soft-rimmed apothecia. Maybe “byssoid”? (Like the rims of Byssoloma.)

to pezizoid (I hope I use the right term here), and from light-red, almost orange, to very dark wine-red. On dolomite of Niagara Escarpment.
