I was tending for tubulosa but, it’s the first time that I see any of them, so…
Thank you for explanation.

Sometimes hard to distinguish, aren’t they?

Especially when the lobe tips in H. tubulosa are damaged and look burst open. But you can always tell by looking at young soralia: they always start on top of intact lobe tips in H. tubulosa. H. physodes shouldn’t become sorediate until the tips burst open (and then the soredia should be on the inside of the lobes, not on top).
