I just tried to re-photograph these lichens – see observation 90421. That observation seems like X.fallax , and so are the middle two photos on this one. The other two must be X.ulophyllodes, based on similar collections in the area (see observation 88828).

Stand by…

I will obtain these specimen – it’s nearby – and then we’ll figure them out.

Maybe two things?

I see pycnidia in image 203254 and image 203255 but not the other two. There are other differences, too, I think. The soredia look different. Notice how they are obviously under the lobes in image 203254 and image 203255, but are more granular and marginal to maybe even laminal in the other two.

This is tricky!
