Recognized by sight: okay, I lied, there is another entirely-granular golden lichen, and it’s not readily distinguishable from _Chrysothrix. Under a microscope I think you should be able to find some non-granular bits of thallus mixed in with the granules if it is Candelariella. Candelariella is K+ pink/rose, but so can Chrysothrix.
