Crustose lichen, sorediate with big cephalodia (cyanobacteria), maybe Placopsis lambii.

I know JH watches over MO with concern. C’mon Jason! Out on our heels for your programming. :D

is usually proposed to encourage the poster to split his/her observation. These are, without question, two different species, despite having the same collection location. Unless you want to leave it as it is — which would diminish your chances of the fungus in image 4 getting any attention — I encourage you to split the observation.

They grew from the same source and in the same spot.

I’ve added “Mixed Collection” to the proposed name, taking us back to the issue of allowing us to propose “Mixed Collection” with two more subfields for each species.

and place it in a new observation. i’m not sure what it is, but someone else might, particularly Jason.

I wondered about that.

It was either going to be a less mature version of the same species or a separate one.

If anyone can ID it, or you Danny, please propose the name. I appreciate all your IDs and correspondence.
