That’s odd

Only ones I have notes on are trachyphylla, ignea, and arenaria. Wait, no, I see it, but I wasn’t able to settle on a species. I didn’t know anything back in 2006. My notes are:

substrate: granitic boulder in Eaton Canyon
thallus: convex areolate to verruculose, indistinct margin, K+r
apothecia: darker in center, well-developed margin, K+r
spores: 12-15 × 8 µm, septum > 2.5 µm, 8 per ascus

That probably describes several species.
