The tips are pointed. This has to be C. ochrochlora or C. coniocraea. There is apparently some question as to whether C. coniocraea is really a good species, and even if it is, whether it occurs in the east. This is a particularly sorediate form, suggesting C. coniocraea, but I see a few podetia with significant corticated sheath at the base. So I’m erring on the side of caution and sticking with C. ochrochlora.
