Eyes3
Recognized by sight: this is a common species (and one of the few Peltigera) which grows truly epiphytic on branches and high on dry trunks; it should be completely smooth, pruinose at the tips (usually very faint) and have soredia along some margins; distinguished from Nephroma by having rhizines and veins; if this were on the ground I would be less confident because we can’t really see the important details (texture of surface, veins, soredia) in these photos
