But it looks like it might be one of the only Pertusaria which you don’t need spores or chemistry for(!) It’s described as having pruinose pertusariate apothecia (buried in warts), the rims “formed of concentric rings of thalline tissue, usually distinctly salmon-pink”. (I’m not seeing these pink tones on any photos I can find, but the concentric rims are striking.)
