Only a few sorediate Xanthoria in east

Only true sorediate Xanthoria is X. sorediata, which this definitely isn’t. Xanthomendoza ullophyllodes and X. fallax don’t seem to make it that far south. Leaving only X. weberi (used to be included in X. fulva). Description matches: soredia hidden under tiny hoods at ends of small semi-erect lobes.
