C.subsoluta is fairly common in Arboretum in Madison.

There are other observations that have been made nearby and verified. Doesn’t mean much, I know.

No specimen for this one.

It grows in public place, so I can’t get a specimen. All I can say is that Sharnoff photo looks very similar to this one, and the species is found in WI.

I’m guessing this is C. squamosa group

Maybe C. subsoluta? Morphologically, they are supposed to have somewhat scattered squamule-like areoles, I think. Microscopically, they have somewhat conspicuous round cells in the proper exciple.

This is the reddest lichen I’ve ever seen
