Notes: I found only one observation in the database with this species, MO48311. Relatively to that observation the main differences are: (a) lobes more well defined, (b) the color of soraria in my specimen is darker, probably for being more mature (the center of thallus started to disintegrate).

Important that you include “according to my opinion”! :)
Next time I make it to BC (this summer) I’ll try to get expert confirmations on a lot of my more questionable opinions.
.. that my attempt to give a name to this specimen was successful, according to your opinion.
I saw some identical material in New Mexico a few weeks ago (including the dark soredia), and I concluded tentatively that it had to be Phaeophyscia orbicularis, as well. And I had the distinct advantage of having access to a full treatment of the genus in that region by Esslinger! :)
