I would collect and test this one, were I to see it in the field right now. Could go either way. I doubt perisidiosa. Some soralia are hard to tell, but the ones I can be sure of are all marginal.

This one has soralia mostly along the margins, but generally shorter than P.detersa, I think. On the other hand, the first photo looks like it might be P.perisidiosa. There is a chance that two photos dispaly different species, even though they were right next to each other.
