Most common one at low to mid elevation (by my limited notes) is X. cumberlandia, and it can be (but usually isn’t) as lobulate as this in the interior. I do have one record of X. californica (http://bornnaturalist.org/images/20070715/14.jpg) that looks more lobulate. But, needless to say, there are dozens of other options!
