But here are some shots of a particularly well-developed population I just discovered nearby: observation 91654

I’m not familiar with that at all.

I looked it up in Brodo, and the chemistry looks identical. I looked at photos on Stridvall, but they’re all magnified, so I failed to get a sence of how the thing looks like from the distance.

I’d consider L. hagenii, as well

Common in urban areas. At least the one I’m familiar with. :)

I think it’s L.dispersa – it can be on old wood. It’s so tiny that my point-and-shoot was struggling to get a decent photo.
