Spore septum average was 2.6 over a rather small sample, but is likely not wide enough for pyracea. C. californica is still an enigma to me. Texosporium sancti-jacobi found on this twig 3 years after sticking it in an envelope marked Caloplaca sp.!

Carrizo Plain National Monument, Selby Rocks. HCL- sandstone. Thallus K+Y. Small epihymenial granules POL+, soluble in K, but pigments not. No large crystals in amphithecium. The apothecia were badly damaged by snails in most areas. ID is my best guess so far, but probably deserves another look.
