This observation of Rhizoplaca is the most similar for Karkaraly National park in Kazakhstan.
It has the same problem: some Rhizoplaca create apothecia via microholes as black dark dots.
Other “Rhizoplaca” (?) creates apothecia via short cuttings or scar (see observations 216980, 236111, 241527).
I would love to know what causes them! Almost like an insect gall, but there’s never anything inside of them (that I can tell).
that all this bewildering variety of lobules, squamules, apothecia etc.is just one species (I love those little “balls” in particular).
