I don’t remember any common Melanelia up north that were so loose; Leptogium like basic substrates, such as poplars (aspen). Do you remember what the undersurface looked like? It would be nice to have a closer look at the texture of the surface, too — it looks like it’s isidiate or lobulate, important info for IDing either genus.

There are some nice Physcia adscendens (the physcias with white “eyelashes”) and a Xanthoria fulva (the orange one with soredia under the tips) also in the shot. Is this place near a farm? These are all very pollution tolerant species.
