I do not know X. Montana, a western species, so you may be right.

I agree

See notes for the image. I was assuming the fertile one was X. montana, but I confess I didn’t check the spores. I think we can rule out Xanthoria polycarpa, though, since that species has much more terete or at least subterete lobes. This stuff is clearly broadly foliose.

2 Teloschistaceae?

Looks like there’s 2 Xanthomendoza here: X. fallax (center right) and X. hasseana or Xanthoria polycarpa (the fertile one)?
