I think spray paint may be involved in this observation!

My best guess is that this is a Lepraria sp. growing over red spray paint. I’ve looked over Cryptothecia and _Herpothallon, and really the only species with significant amounts of red is H. rubrocinctum, but it is “opposite” what we see here: it has red soredia over greenish-grayish thallus and red margin. I see greenish soredia over featureless red base.
