to other of my observations (e.g. MO90860, Hahaha!).

Then you’ve got a new report for Portugal!

Haha! P. endococcina has no soredia. P. hirsuta is hairy (although admittedly they could simply be sparse and invisible in these photos, but even then, the soredia should be coarser). P. hispidula and P. nigricans have coarse isidioid soredia. Leaves only P. orbicularis. Or something like P. pusilloides which hasn’t been reported from there yet.

The Phaeophyscia in the portuguese checklist are: P. endococcina, P. hirsuta, P.hispidula, P. nigricans, P. orbicularis. Initally I thought it could be a anusual form of P. orbicularis, but the thallus is too yellowish and the rhizines are too whitish (best seen in the 2nd specimen) for this species.

Far too many rhizines

I think this is Phaeophyscia. Do you have P. pusilloides?
