Sounds right…

I’m rusty on Ramalina’s and didn’t have a field guide with me during collections, R. farinaceae sounds right… I’m pretty sure its not an Evernia this one had the “ribbon-like” feel to them… pretty ones, the sorediation.

Also alot of sorediated E. prunastri in the groves in that area, very very dominant… sagebrush steppe going right up to the oak-savanna in this area…

It does look a little like Evernia prunastri

But I lean toward Ramalina, too. Too thin and narrow and the pointy tips… Again, I’d stick with R. farinacea. Looks like your other choices are non-starters: pollinaria, roesleri, leptocarpha, thrausta, menziesii, divaricata.
