Thanks but…

I wish I could give useful advice on this group, but it confuses the hell out of me! :) One source claims C. transcendens should be cupped, but the ones I’ve seen (IDed by trusted sources) haven’t had any cups! C. umbricola should be found in shaded locations and have conspicuous, finely-divided squamules. Yours might qualify. C. transcendens I think is supposed to have coarser soredia or “corticate granules”, while the other two I think are supposed to have powdery soredia. I wouldn’t trust the soredia thing until I had a chance to compare more literature, though. People who understand the species have no trouble, so they must be good species… too bad the literature doesn’t make it easy for beginners.

You are FAR from little help….

I deeply appreciate all the patience and knowledge you have given me. Thanks, Jason.

I think the only other ones you have to worry about

(aside from C. macilenta) are C. umbricola and maybe C. transcendens. I’m little help, though.
