…but you can definitely see that the other one has no black foam underneath, so it’s not Anzia. Maybe Pyxine? The pruina would suggest either Pyxine or Physconia leucoleiptes (although the latter genus seems very rare in the southeast. Would be best to check the rhizines: Physconia almost always has distinctly bottle-brush-like (squarrose) black rhizines. Usually, pretty conspicuous, so I would’ve expected to see at least a few in the photo.s
