I don’t think that this location has more lichens than other places.

Just in winter there is nothing to see there except lichens, because there are no flowers or mushrooms.

Certainly, I understand

Just making suggestions in case you think of it next time.

By the way, these are gorgeous specimens (and gorgeous photos). Are there lots of lichens this well-developed in central Texas? Can’t imagine why more lichenologists don’t visit with material like that to work with!

Underside view is not available.

Would also help rule out other Physciaceae more definitively. (I’m just going on the “flowing” texture of the lobes, usually a sign of a prosoplectenchymatous upper cortex, but could certainly be wrong.)
