Many thalli populate this tree, with apothecia ranging from pink to almost black and everything in between. In this lineup I picked the ones with pink or visibly reddish apothecia – contrast with the ones having darker apothecia (and greener thallus) in photos 4 & 5 & 6 (the latter are also featured separately in observation 212950)
