It is on granitic blocks at the edge of pine-tree forest with some birches. The closest NaClO test for the same structure got yellow-orange colouring

One down… how many to go? :) If only every species had such a distinctive chemical spot test!

NaClO test painted apothecia in yellow-orange

Two closest NaClO tests for the same structure with flattened whitish apothecia made yellow-orange and orange-yellow colouring (GPS 20.1 and GPS 288); one NaClO test for convex whitish apothecia made yellow-orange apothecia colouring and green painting between apothecia (GPS 20)

Gorgeous Specimen!

Whatever it is. The apothecia don’t look right to me for Aspicilia, but my very limited experience with the genus could certainly be wrong. Any chemistry or other details available?
