Any clue on this cyano lichen?

    I am going nuts trying to ID this cyano lichen.  Their thalli are bulb like structures that seem to coalesce into a colony.  I am unable to find any reproductive structures. It is growing on limestone.  

    The scale is 1 mm.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    This should be in Key B of the Microlichen book.

    Possibilities include Peccania and Synalissa.

    There are additional detailed photos on the OregonDigital photo library.
