you are right; There is no other chance.
Thanks, Jason, for clarifying this matter.

mysterious green thing

I’m just as stumped as you. But I interpret it slightly differently: it appears to be tomentose below but with small hyaline cortical hairs on the upper surface especially near the lobe tips and margins. The medulla appears to be yellow, furthermore. I can’t find anything matching this. Perhaps what I’m intepreting as cortical hairs on the upper surface is merely coarse pruina? I have photos of specimens from the Great Smoky Mountains which have such pruina and which look almost like minute hairs. This specimen also has pale tomentum on the lower surface that looks from above like minute white rhizines. I think Pseudocyphellaria aurata is still the best guess we have.

Any hint about the green one in the middle of the 2nd photo?

Magnifying that photo one can see small white rhizines under the margins of lobes. I think this excludes Pseudocyphellaria aurata, which I though to be the species._
