There are vagrant Xanthoparmelia

But those all have strongly rolled up (tube-like) lobes, and this stuff doesn’t. I would probably go with X. coloradoensis (assuming it has salazinic acid). I think phylogenetic work is beginning to show that all of the above are the same species, anyway, so it’s probably a moot point in the long run.
