This is a tropical genus, but this one species makes it all the way up to the Canadian border. It’s a bit tricky to distinguish — it just “has that look”. The small, very round, thick, lobes with conspicuous white pruina, often only pruinose back from the margins, somewhat concave, somewhat shiny… and if you scratch it, it is often somewhat orangish-yellowish inside instead of the usual snow-white of almost all other lichens. Chemistry also helps.
