But I think this is actually lichenized… I’m just drawing a blank as to which one!

i think unlichenized

i think it is probably some non-lichenized fungus, like xylobolus frustulatus in the early stages, or something like that anyway. due to the proximity of those other apothecia, i think I got distracted into thinking it was all the same thing there.

Doesn’t look right for Lecanora symmicta

L. symmicta apothecia kind of melt together where they touch. Yours are staying separate with angular cracks between them keeping them separate. Not sure what this is, though, sorry.
