Great photos of underside! Makes this a cinch to ID. The color — emerald green from green algal photobiont instead of cyanobacteria like most Peltigera — puts it in the aphthosa-leucophlebia group, but P. aphthosa has no veins below (or they’re very broad). P. chionophila is similar but has less wavy margin and is found at higher elevations.
