Used references: Brodo’s Lichens of N. A. — this is a common species up there in nutrient-rich areas (like clearly must be with so many Physcia and Caloplaca), however the specimens are so broken up it’s hard to see if there are pseudocyphellae on the surface or not… With soredia like this has it can hardly be anything else.

Recognized by sight: It is difficult to say for sure, but the soralia seem to be erose rather than erumpent and the lobes seem to be somewhat contorted/revolute.
Used references: Hodkinson, B. P., J. C. Lendemer, and T. L. Esslinger. 2010. Parmelia barrenoae, a macrolichen new to North America and Africa. North American Fungi 5(3): 1-5.

Just looked at all my notes and found something in BC that looks like it might be P. barrenoae, too. Great job noticing the difference and untangling these two species! observation 48683
