Fair enough

I just thought the lobe shape looked really unusual for Hypotrachyna. It’s apparently not a very well-developed specimen because it has no soredia or isidia or apothecia. Maybe it’s just unusual conditions.

I have no photo of it,

but they were as you describe and similar to those in observation 78092.

Would be good to see the rhizines underneath

Almost all North American Hypotrachyna have a very distinctive mat of short forked rhizines.
