On Sambucus nigra ssp. caerulea (Blue Elderberry, formerly S. mexicana). I think also on nearby oaks, but I’ll post that separately.
Irregularly shaped, abundant on trunk and small branches. Thallus upper surface pruinose, greyish white, lower surface light brown, pale white at lobe margins. Rhizines dense, black, squarrose, with occasional long simple clear/white ones. Apothecia uncommon on most specimens but occasionally abundant. Spot test K-.
Two specimens photographed in situ, one piece shot under microscope.
