Pruinose tips, short white cilia, soredia under some tips. Atypical “look”, but not much else it can be, so far north. H. hypoleuca has no soredia. H. galactophylla is rare (and has no cortex underneath, something you could check for later to verify). H. pseudospeciosa is mostly an Appalachian species, so presumably rare out there (it has K+ yellow to red medulla versus K- in speciosa, it is also typically on rock, while yours is on moss… mossy tree?)
