We don’t have Flavoparmelia soredians in North America, so it’s super easy for us! :)

This group of observations was all from very high elevation in the Smokies. Many common species look a bit odd up there. It is not unusual for the usnic species to be especially yellowish, not just Flavoparmelia and Flavopunctelia.

Another spectacular set of observations!

Regarding this one, in this specimens the soredia is (almost completely) lacking, like in the one that I posted recently. The color seems to be a bit more yellow.
