If I see it again I will see how it is attached. It caught my eye because I don’t see many white lichens. I have been hunting mushrooms in Mexico for the past 3 months and haven’t seen anything else that looks like it.
Can’t quite tell, but if foliose (resting on top of substrate, with lower cortex present, at least the lobe tips easily removed without leaving the lower surface still attached) then I’d suggest Dirinaria. If crustose (fully attached to substrate, no lower cortex except maybe in a very narrow “rim” just under the margins, impossible to remove from substrate intact), then maybe Tephromela. It looks too white to be any foliose species I know; but if it is Tephromela it looks like it’s a lobed rosette, which isn’t right as far as I know, either. Probably means it’s neither! :)
