I know this is one of my “advisor’s” specialties, but I still have trouble with Hypogymnia. I think your options here are H. occidentalis and H. enteromorpha, thanks to the constricted side-lobes. I lean toward H. occidentalis because it is tending to be flat, while enteromorpha should be more three-dimensional like imshaugii.
