Recognized by sight: The elongated, convex lobes are typical of this species (and it is very common throughout the desert interior). Xanthoria elegans (which is truly foliose as opposed to foliose-due-to-sandstone-eroding-out-from-under-it) looks a lot like this, too, but habitat is wrong. I think.
