Only two species on CA coast with double rim, that’s cool. Usually need chemistry for this genus. O. subpallescens and O. oregonensis. Brodo 1990 describes latter as having “thick, hard, shiny” rims, with algae confined to lateral margins; the former as having “rough, dull” margins with algae continuous below apothecial disk.
