I totally agree with P. missouriensis

At least this is what I’ve been calling P. missouriensis! And as usual, you have found the nicest specimen ever.

I’m not sure of my ID here

But I tend to call everything weird P. missouriensis. Under “weird” I mean it has soredia, but they’re large and coarse and some of them resemble isidia. Also, there are some tiny flattened lobules present, sticking out among soredia here and there. This observation doesn’t look like observation 99352, where isidia, soredia and lobules are all clearly present.
