Physcia americana is a fairly small species, and the soralia are on the surface of the lobes, not the margins. You’re the pro when it comes to Phaeophyscia now, right? You’re in the center of diversity for the genus.

I had this set of photos marked as Physcia americana – these are one of my first lichen photos, that I started taking in 2009. Upon careful examination, now I think it’s Phaeophyscia pusilloides (rubropulchra?). I want to hear comments from you pros.
