Pruina?? Hmmm…

No, I agree with you. I need to look this up, though… Aha! Yes, Vitikainen does mention that P. elisabethae is “rarely pruinose marginally”. Phew. See, I thought pruina was exclusive to the P. neckeri group. Like maybe you had phyllidiosa or an odd form of neckeri or collina. But it really looks like elisabethae. Good to know. As usual, you’re pushing the boundaries. Door County again? Yup, that figures…

Not sure about tomentum…

Upper sufrace smooth and shiny, but there is a tiny bit of white towards the (some) lobe tips – it looks more like a pruina than tomentum. Regeneration lobules are present. Lower surface dark-brown, but white toward tips, practically vein-less, with small white openings, rhizines are dark short tufts.
