The finely divided squamules are typical of C. didyma, and I’ve seen the squamules covering the podetia like this in shaded places in the Smokies before. Should be K+ strong yellow, I think (var. vulcanica). If K- then you need to check very carefully to see if it is smooth to verrucose but entirely corticate between the squamules, or if there are coarse granules or soredia anywhere. C. didyma has to have at least some soredia.
