Would you be willing to send this specimen to Trevor Goward? He’s working on this group presently. This is one of his new species, I’m pretty sure. He could use more material.

Agreed, this is neither P. canina nor P. rufescens

One of many undescribed species in this group. Best to call it “Peltigera cf. canina” but MO doesn’t handle that syntax, so next bext option is “Peltigera canina group”.

Lowers surface with rhizines looks like P.rufescens

but the tips of the lobes bent down like P.canina. Grows in the open, on rocks covered by very thin soil layer.
