Still not sure about the specimen on the top photo: the site has a mix of X.viriduloumbrina and X.plittii. Some thallii are invading into each other, creating a mixed matrix of both species. The specimen in the photo in question looks more like X.viriduloumbrina, but clearly displays some isidia at the bottom, and it doesn’t look like another specimen is nearby or a part of it.
