Normally, the Cladonia with broad cups and clearly foliose primary thallus would be called C. pocillum, but that species is restricted to calcareous habitats — limestone, caliche, etc. (Zaca has many observations from Portugal, for example.) This must be something I’ve never heard of… Which admittedly isn’t all that surprising, considering my complete lack of experience in central Asia, ha!

The combination of these photos is typical in wet sites.

They were very close at the same granite block, I repeated similar photos along other water stream rather far away.

I wonder if the first photo is something else

Or if the Cladonia is growing with something like Physconia. Something looks strange.
