I just thought the lobe shape looked really unusual for Hypotrachyna. It’s apparently not a very well-developed specimen because it has no soredia or isidia or apothecia. Maybe it’s just unusual conditions.

Almost all North American Hypotrachyna have a very distinctive mat of short forked rhizines.
