I’ve never seen this genus on the west coast. It’s outwardly very similar to Hypogymnia, but note the holes in the upper surface, kind of like a flute. According to my limited information, the difference between your two species is:

Menegazzia terebrata – soralia diffuse in regular “collars”
Menegazzia subsimilis – soralia more irregular and clumping

Excellent photos and specimen, too. Nice addition to the site!
