It is extremely common in the southeast

And this is perfectly normal-looking in my opinion.

I didn’t think much of it

When I took a picture of this, I barely knew what Physconia was. And I haven’t seen any of Pyxine yet. Now, after picking dozens of Physconia specimens, I see that there is something “wrong” with this picture. On the other hand, I only have one another specimen of Pyxine sorediata, and this one doesn’t look like that or the ones I can find online.

Never thought to confuse Pyxine with Physconia before

Maybe because the two genera don’t overlap that much. In this case I think it is Pyxine sorediata. I saw a few places with the mustard-yellow medulla exposed. It also has a somewhat different look, doesn’t it?

Pyxine sorediata?
