to use them to chase those who dares to potentially create slivers on the benches they like sitting on, by applying chisels to them.

They frown on you removing fence posts?

I can give it back after I’m done with it! :)

What were you thinking it is? flavorubescens? The thallus seems too orange, and apothecia not dark enough for flavorubescens, but then you probably know it much better than I do! Maybe it’s a rock species growing on wood. That happens sometimes.

I can try and get it, it’s not far

I was a bit shy about grabbing a sample, since it’s in a public place, and I also thought it was fairly common one.

I don’t suppose you got a piece of this one?

I would be very interested in studying this one more closely. Looks a lot like something I’m working on in Nevada, also grows on wood (juniper wood).
