But yes, it is a relatively variable species. The characters I look for (for whatever that’s worth, haha!) is the thick “waxy” convex yellow to orangish-yellow areoles and ±substipitate distinctly oranger, big apothecia with distinct but flush contrasting yellower margin. Usually it’s easy to see a distinct, orange inner (“proper”) margin.

(And this specimen in particular matches my search image very well, better than the others I’ve tried to apply the name to!)

This is bolacina too!?
