Here’s another “sunburnt” specimen

observation 94141 from eastern US. I thought it was odd at the time, too, but like you, I failed to come up with a better name. I even did chemistry and microscopy on it. Must just be one of the “things” it can do?

This one is a puzzle.

It does look somewhat like Diploschistes in the observation 97289. It’s got those deep craters that can easily be seen in these photos. The only weird thing is its color. Its obviously yellowish hue is puzzling. Mind you, it’s growing right next to a Lerparia-like sorediose mass, with un-lepraria greenish-yellowish color. I wonder if there is a connection? Or maybe it’s a different lichen altogether and I’m just plain dumb.
