Rules out Xanthoria s. lato. There are some Caloplaca I don’t recognize, and of course lots of Lecanora and several genera I’ve never even heard of. Tried looking up photos of a few, but no dice. I have an idea: check the spores: you could at least verify the family that way: Teloschistaceae has polarlocular spores, very distinctive and unique. I’m beginning to suspect it is Lecanoraceae or something else instead.
Wish I could suggest a better name, but I have no literature for the region. I just saw ref to a checklist of lichens in Bolivia the other day. Do you happen to know it off the top of your head?
it’s suspected as being the same as observation 88671. This occurred in with the bright oranges seen here, the paler pinks in 88671, and many shades inbetween. It was among the only lichen sp. observed throughout the entire 27km trek, coupled with four macrofungi, three of which were growing with cow dung. I had been told we would come into good habitat for an unknown Amanita and a variety of stalked puffballs. No such luck.
the saturation is less in MO’s rendering of the images than on my machine, as I mentioned to you in PM, and both of these images plus those of 88671 were handheld, hence the mediocre definition.
