Recognized by sight: I’d definitely go with Phaeophyscia — those white-tipped, black, abundant, radiating, simple rhizines seem to be very characteristic of the genus. There aren’t many in the southeast without soredia. P. ciliata should have minute, clear, bristly, fine hairs at the tips (might need a hand lens or even a microscope to see them, though). I also have noted P. hirtella in the same group, but know nothing of that species.
