Lendemer’s key to North American species suggests L. ecorticata should be K- (and KC+y), while I think L. lobificans might be K+y. That would suggest it should be L. lobificans. (The apparent KC+y reaction shown could easily be a very persistent K+y reaction which the subsequent addition of C is failing to erase.) It’s entirely plausible. Nice photos.
