Recognized by sight: This seems to flat, not fimbriate-byssoid like my images of Porostereum crassum.
Also if you look at the map on this site: http://www.discoverlife.org/mp/20q?search=Porostereum you will see that Porostereum crassum seems to only grow very close to the ocean. This map leads me to believe that it mainly grows in coastal climates like my own. This is completely hypothetical though. Another part of my hypothesis is the fact that it grows in Australia and Santa Cruz had imported eucalyptus trees that were brought here in the 1850s from Australia and they are all over the place here now. Possibly Porostereum crassum was inadvertently brought here too.
