I would agree that this group are a different species from your other find.

This species of Scutellinia stands apart from others, I believe.

They are large (the biggest discs are half inch in diameter or even slightly bigger). Their discs are not round with elevated edges but look more like other Discomycetes, with fruit bodies appressed and a bit wavy. They are not very gregarious, forming scattered communities rather than tightly packed groups. And their eyelashes are smaller in relation to the fruitbody size.
