Recognized by sight: should grow directly on mineral soil; this appears to be growing on mossy rock(?); also the crust is too sorediate and too green for my tastes

Our only options are Baeomyces rufus (typically brown not pink, but apparently variable according to photos on-line, and dirt-common) and Dibaeis baeomyces (with a paler crust, and extremely rare on the west coast).
